Remembering fall drives & colors in Yosemite . It is truly one of my favorite places in the world. Driving into the park and seeing El Capitan for the first time is an experience you can’t describe. As much as I love summer, I will always long for the oranges and reds that fall brings. What’s your favorite season?

Sunset reflection in the alps . We were walking up to the lake when we saw a ray of light break through the clouds and reveal this amazing color. We started running and caught up with the sky just in time. I loved spending this moment with amazing people 🇨🇭. @davosklosters @myswitzerland #inlovewithswitzerland

I stood on the top of a hill watching the sunrise above the Swiss mountains in complete silence. I watched the sky turn from orange to red as the sun slowly emerged behind the mountain peaks. It doesn’t matter how many sunrises I see, I’m still amazed at how beautiful they are and how lucky we all are to live on this planet and experience them. The Swiss countryside doesn’t make a bad foreground, either . @engadinscuolzernez @myswitzerland #inlovewithswitzerland🇨🇭

One of my favorite things about New Hampshire was all of the lakes. I loved seeing all of the houses with their own private docks & boats. New England is a really special part of the U.S. and I can’t wait to explore it in the fall . @visitnh

One of the questions I get asked the most is, how did you work full time and travel the world? And I have two answers: time management and easy access to opportunities. I’ve been doing photography for 4 years, and for 3 of those years, I had a full time job at Amazon. I was lucky enough to get that job through LinkedIn! While I have had many opportunities come through Instagram, most of my professional contacts and opportunities have come from LinkedIn. I love that I can access it anywhere and network with someone where I am to find people who share similar interests. For example, when I was on Maui, I used LinkedIn’s “near me” feature to connect with local brands in the area to collaborate. LinkedIn has 20 million jobs available, but most importantly, it has the community to help you find the right one. More info can be found at LinkedIn.com/jobs. #inittogether #sponsored

Orange sherbet layers as seen from a hot air balloon . This has been on my bucket list for such a long time . Being able to see the desert at sunrise from the sky was such an unreal experience. I love living in Washington, but Arizona has so many vibrant textures. The American southwest holds such a dear place in my heart. Thanks to @balloonsaz & @staywithstylescottsdale for this incredible experience  I will be giving away a trip for 2 to Arizona soon—keep your eyes open!

I fell in love with the Spanish architecture in Santa Barbara. I have loved design & interiors for a long time, but never post them here on my feed. I’ve been wanting to branch out and show you guys different aspects of travels, but haven’t taken the risk in doing so! But one of my passions is finding unique hotels, restaurants, cabins, etc as I feel those things enhance my travel as much as landscapes do. @hotelcalifornian is the kind of place I dream of. Designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, his attention to detail is exquisite. Let me know if you guys would like to see more of this kind of thing ️. Would love to show more of my passions & interests here on this platform ️ @visitsantabarbara #seesb

#ad One of the biggest questions I get asked on Instagram is how I manage my finances as a freelancer. With tax season quickly approaching—I wanted to share one of my favorite apps I use to make this time of the year less stressful. Since I work with multiple clients throughout the year, it can be hard to keep track of everyone I have worked with and how many W2 forms I filled out that past year. I hate to admit it—but I do 70% of my work on my phone, mainly because of all the traveling I do. Once I found out that I could file my taxes on my phone with Credit Karma Tax, I was sold.
The best thing about Credit Karma Tax is—it’s totally free! The interface of the app is completely user-friendly and everything you need to file your taxes is available to you without paying to upgrade your app. My favorite feature is the document import—where I can take photos of my W2 forms and upload the information directly into the app. It also allows you to directly deposit your tax refund into your bank account via direct deposit. I dread doing my taxes so much. Thankfully—I can do them all from my phone ️. #creditkarmatax @creditkarma. Let me know if you guys have any questions about how I handle my finances as a freelancer!

Relaxing morning at the hot springs ‍️️. Snowshoed uphill for a few miles to find these hot springs in the mountains. Spent most of the morning there in the peace & quiet. Hot springs are definitely the best reward after a cold hike!

I thought water this blue only existed in Banff and then I went to Argentina . Patagonia has some of the most beautiful lakes I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to describe how special it was to be that far south in the world, but it’s one of the most unique experiences I’ve ever had in my life.

Not a bad way to say good morning to the world . My friend @karl_shakur was loving the views  If you were to ask me one what was my favorite place I visited in 2018, I would probably say Indonesia. The country was so diverse with so many different things to do and see. From hiking volcanoes, exploring jungles, lounging on beaches—there really is something for everyone. Would love to go back in 2019 and see more!  what was your favorite place you visited this year? I’m trying to make my 2019 bucketlist.
