Oh hey, friend! Welcome!

Hi, I’m Jess ☺ a perfectly ordinary girl, living a perfectly ordinary life. As a kid, I was never without my camera and a notebook & pen. A few decades later, and nothing much has changed…

I love using my love of writing and photography to explore the world via travel and food. Through them, we get to see the differences and similarities of lives around the world up close. We learn what a culture values and how they work. We see what they cook for comfort and what they cook to impress. We watch strangers come together over a delicious meal, because despite foreign tongues, food is a universal language. And through all of this travelling and eating, we also come to see that we are all human.

I’m a little older now, but still on the same curiosity voyage I was on as a child. I’m here to learn as much about the world as I can, and to record it along the way. Because over time, everything changes. Cities are re-built, lifestyles adjust, cultures evolve. And so I capture my experiences, in both words and images, without any fanciness or pretense, because some day it will have all changed and it would be a shame not to keep some of it for my son and the generations to come.
