My Creative Work
Look, I’m going to be honest here. This is something I’m still figuring out. I am not a professional photographer, but I love taking photos. I am not a web developer, but I loved creating this website.
In 2019, I have partnered with Mountain Standard and Hydro Flask to be an ambassador for these awesome brands that I love. This mostly involves taking these products that I already have, use and love with me on adventures and creating content with them (usually in the form of photos or a story). This stuff is just for fun.
This year, I’m exploring ways to do more creative work and here’s the key - *get paid for it*.
So stay tuned and follow along this year to see how I make these ideas a reality. Below are a few examples of my photo work.
Adventure Travel Sports Rentals
In October 2018, I partnered with ATSR to attend the Women on the Road Gathering in Taos, NM. At the time, I was traveling on the east coast and it just didn’t make sense to try and make the trek out to NM for the event in my own van. I had a blast flying into Denver, picking up this badass adventure rig and taking a solo road trip from Denver, CO down to Taos, NM for the event.
Step 1: Fill the fridge and find the dirt roads
Step 2: Find your camp spot before the sun goes down, crack open that can of wine and cook yourself some dinner.
Women on the Road Gathering
Taos, New Mexico || October 2018
Women on the Road is a community born out of a podcast hosted by Laura Hughes. In October 2018, WOTR partnered with Vanlife Diaries to host the first ever Women on the Road gathering at Hotel Luna Mystica in Taos, NM. It was a wonderful weekend where I had the chance to connect with wonderful like-minded women from - many of which I had some sort of online interaction with before this event. It was a chance to put real life faces this community.
Rather than giving you a full write up of the event, I’m going to urge you to head over to these articles written by Katie Larsen at Go-Van or Kathleen Morton at Vanlife Diaries on the event - you’ll recognize some of these photos featured ;)
I left this weekend with WOTR feeling empowered by other female travelers. There were a lot of conversations that revolved around solo female travel - including constant questions from friends, family and outsiders about feeling scared or lonely. These conversations were fresh in my mind as I started the road trip from Taos back to Denver. I shared my thoughts on solo female travel in this post below.
