My Bio I have always had an interest in writing and photography. An invitation from a friend to travel with him to the Democratic Republic of Congo led to an adventure and a reawakening of my interest in writing, photography and travel. The images and thoughts from my trip to such a distant land resulted in my book about my travels to the Congo.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
Not quite sure, but I would like to do a photo book on Iran. Pictures really do tell a story of a thousand words in a single image and what better way to see a different side of Iran than what is regularly portrayed in the media.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
There are quite a few I could name, but at the top of the list (for the moment) is The Kite Runner.
