During the summer of 2016, I traveled overseas completely on my own for the first time. Over the course of seven weeks, I wandered through Scandinavia exploring the Swedish heritage of my grandmother, made my way to Berlin by train, and confronted the stark beauty of Iceland—stretching myself along the way.

Around Here Lately

I moved away from Seattle at eighteen—headed south for college in California, and then east to spend my twenties in New York City. Eventually, at age 29, I moved back home for a variety of reasons and have been back now for almost five years. It’s been an interesting journey to rediscover the city I grew up in, to see its nooks and crannies anew particularly as the architectural landscape changes quickly. Here are some photos of things I know well (like the Market and ferry boat rides) viewed again with fresh, more grateful eyes.
