I've been blogging for 11 years and making creative content for my entire working life. I work with brands on rewarding and original content creation, both on my channels and theirs and I'm a stock photographer for Getty Images. On this blog I share stories of creative family living as well as my photography and videos. If you'd like to get in touch, please email me. (link at top of page)

Silver nomads and micro housesits (our experience with TrustedHousesitters.com)
