Never able to sit still, I'm always on the go. With a camera at my side, I'm always seeking out a new adventure, experiencing a new place, living in a different culture, or meeting someone new.  My wanderlust has brought me to the far corners of the earth and I still have a lot of ground to cover.

Vietnam: An Untouched Countryside

An Open Society

Aside from a few bombed out war relics scattered throughout the countryside, one wouldn't know Vietnam was once a war torn country. People are happy, proud, and eager to show off their country. There's a palpable feeling of eagerness and hope as income levels have started to rise, and a promise for a better future is driving everyone forward. Big changes are on the horizon for Vietnam's 90 million people.  

The Junk Collector

Springs, tire rims, bolts, muffler parts, and even Vietnam War relics can be found throughout this gentlemen's property.  You need it, this guy will find it.

The Silkworm Factory

Old silk manufacturing machines produce much of the clothing available in Vietnam's countryside.

Candy Factory

Vietnam's sweet tooth is satisfied by sugar 

Chopstick Factory

There's a chopstick factory around every corner in Vietnam. Manual labor makes up most of the process. 

Incense Maker 

Sawdust into incense. This family has made incense for over 100 years, and continue to sell their aromatics on the roadside in front of their house. 

Tea Fields & Factory

Brought to the country by the French, tea has become a way of life in this South East Asian country. Green tea plants now make up a majority of the vegetation in Vietnam's countryside.
