I'm happiest behind a camera. So, when I'm not working and we're not dealing with a global pandemic, you can usually find me somewhere in the world, hiking, getting lost in cities and taking pictures. Other than that I follow my ambiverted passions of watching series, reading, and listening to a lot of podcasts while going on walks.
