Your Bio

Welcome to my view on life. My beautiful future wife created this site for me as an early Christmas present. (I think she was tired of me saying I was going to create a website sometime……) no really she is so thoughtful; this has to be the best Christmas present I ever received.
This website is a compilation of the pictures I have taken during my travels. I am very lucky to have a job that allows me to travel the world. Or you might say I searched for a job that would allow me to travel the world because I have always been a gypsy at heart. Growing up I always knew that I would see the world and experience the cultures. I was never content with just my neighborhood…..
As many of my friends know I suck when it comes to words. I can’t spell and I am not creative enough to create a blog based on words alone. Some people are gifted in this area (If you want to travel the world with us and visualize it in your head read Lauren’s Blog. She brings our travels alive with just mere words.) Me I have to do it with pictures…….
Growing up my Mom taught me to look at the world a little differently. I hope I bring this across in my pictures. I try to show you how I see the world, just a little different ;-)
I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as I enjoyed taking them, cheers! Bear with me as I learn, I hope each new post brings better pictures than the one before.

Below is my "Christmas Card" from lauren for 2010.. Ranga I love you! xoxxo

Merry Christmas, my love! I figured this would be a great way to show off your amazing photography skills. They also have a great iPad app too! I love you and am so thankful to have you in my life. Can't wait to spend many more holidays with you. I love you!! XOXO
