I became a citizen of the United States of America on February 14, 2014.
Every summer from July to September, I "go walkabout". It started in 2013, when I decided to discover more countries on my home continent of Europe, and visited 15 countries in 50 days with a backpack and a camera. I published my book "Walkabout Europe" on the strength of this trip. A year later I took 3 months to cover the entire continent of Australia and New Zealand.
In 2015 I went on a National Geographic tour of Cuba for 9 days, and two months later I traveled to China, Tibet and Hong Kong to diversify my portfolio.
Photographic courses taken in 2016 include "Headshot Intensive" and "Illuminating The Face" with Peter Hurley, as well as National Geographic's "Advanced Photo Workshop - New York City" with Joe McNally.
In 2016 I visited The Pacific Northwest, Bermuda, New York and New England.
