I am a storyteller and (self-taught) photographer. I grew up in Canada and I’m proud of my Japanese-Chinese heritage.
When I was a child I dreamt of being an astronaut. I would gaze up at the starts and think adventure was “up there”. Now I’m more “grounded” and on a journey to explore earth… first.
I am trying to understand the world through the lens of sustainable and responsible travel. My professional and research passions are in sustainable livelihoods.
I’ve worked for UNESCO World Heritage Site in Greenland, Sustainable Travel International, and Sustainable Tourism Observatories in China. I look for work that bridges my love for conservation and tourism.
I want to immerse myself in storytelling as a way to protect, conserve and respect the diverse forms of life. Several years ago this blog started as a home for the stories I love sharing with friends and family – to this day the purpose hasn’t changed. I am following my heart on this journey and I would love for you to join me!
