My work is influenced by a passion for discovery and a love of travel. My global journeys have cemented a few personal observations:
We Play the Hand We're Dealt. I have seen Incan terraces thousands of feet above sea level where crops are still grown, coffee plantations in eastern Africa where the dust in the dry season seeps into every pore, and sheep farms on Ireland's rolling hills. Human beings survive and sometimes thrive in the harshest of climates and make the most of their environment.
Imagine growing up on a floating island that is smaller than my living room and living off the lake for food, water and reeds. Or, imagine building your home in a rain forest nearly 8,000 feet above sea level with stone walls designed to survive seismic activity, which still stand today hundreds of years later. Our ingenuity to survive, and even thrive, amazes me.
