“I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel for work and have been to some cities I’d never even dreamed of. Every new city has a different vibe, language, music, food and culture and it’s all very inspiring to me. I enjoy disconnecting from the world/social media while just focusing on the moment and my surroundings. I took this picture from the top of a stairway and was fascinated by the bright colors, textures, and the ambiance.”

“Being in Berlin makes me want to create. There is so much art, graffiti, history that I always find myself snapping pictures of random things that catch my eye. This steamy gridded glass window was just another regular bathroom window until a red brake light went on in the background. I felt like something was missing so I scribbled “Te Amo” across it. Maybe someone will see it and feel the same way.”

“Music is a big inspiration for me. While in Oslo, Norway I came across a bar and instantly fell in love with the song playing in the background. I asked for the name of the song and was given the entire playlist for the night. Later I played every song and found some really cool music videos and songs that I’ve had never seen or heard of. Shout out to the DJ (whose name I didn’t get.)”
