You won’t come away from these streets clean. You’ll get filthy with it, dream it, see it in broad daylight, but do it, for God’s sake.” John Newton to William Wilberforce.


As a nomadic writer, photographer, volunteer with an American Passport, I currently work in SE Asia with an organization that helps place children into loving families (biological or foster). Previously I served alongside men and women exiting sex work. I grew up all over the world and the US.

The goal of this blog is to tell stories of the people and places I encounter. I don’t want to only entertain readers. I want to engage you, challenge you, make you think and then act.

How can we live for more than ourselves? How can we change the world to see modern slavery ended and proper care taken to remote places? How can we see lives restored and bring a hope that doesn’t disappoint?
