I know, I know, Mexico is in North America. Please forgive my deliberate miscategorization. Mexico has much more in common, culturally, historically and linguistically with Central America than North America.

  This project, journey, life change began with a trip to Costa Rica in 2004. I have since been back three times, most recently in May, 2007. The idea for a road trip through Central America first came to me soon after returning from Southeast Asia in the fall of 2005. Seeing the United States from outside our borders is an awakening experience. I decided that I would do whatever I could to live for a time abroad as an artist/photographer. At first, I planned to simply move to Costa Rica, but my vision soon evolved into one of an odyssey through the whole region, a cultural immersion, if you will. This will allow me to both develop the language skills i still don't have, and to see the region from a less touristic perspective.

  It has taken me longer than I anticipated to divest myself of my belongings, including a house, but my truck and I are finally ready.

  Following a three Month trip to Honduras and Guatemala this summer to work in a clinic and study Spanish, I will set off south for the adventure of a lifetime.

  Stay tuned here for updated photos as I travel, and visit my my journal for stories along the way.
