At 21 years old, living in Los Angeles, I found myself sick of the city, the people, my life and needed to get out.  I got on a plane bound for Italy in a town I’d never heard of called, Torino where I planned to spend the summer teaching English and taking photographs.  Three years later I had built an incredible life for myself, creating, living, learning, loving while photographing and journaling about it all;  The curiosity of discovering a new city, the seeds of inspiration that are put into an image, the experiences of love that led me there. Life can be really complicated when you’re trying to figure it all out.
