Travel is a beautiful thing. It’s education in its simplest form; a chance to build resilience while testing your limits. It just takes one encounter to change your perspective forever.
My Circus Demo
I may not be an expert at one thing, but gosh darn it, I can definitely do a few things.
From monasteries in Tibet to dress rehearsals on stage, I’m trying to capture the moments I’ll hopefully never forget.
