Thank you for showing up!

I have been traveling the world over 5 years, to over 75 countries, across 6 continents. My passion is to inform and inspire people and give them a glimpse into what life is like for other people around the world.

In 2015, I started the Faces of Places Project in an effort to share how people live around the world. I have traveled to remote corners of the world to photograph unique people groups and cultures to both preserve their way of life in a photograph and show the common humanity we all share despite our cultural differences. We live in a very unique era, where these cultures are opened up to us like never before, yet western culture has a larger influence on these remote regions at the same time. With each passing generation, a little bit of the vibrant, unique cultures that have been preserved for millennia are lost. Kids no longer wear their tribal clothing, but are raised in donated Nike shoes and Hollister t shirts. That is why it is critical to travel now and document the remaining unique cultures that have made humanity so beautiful and diverse.

To this point, no-one has ever paid me to embark on this journey. I am on a mission to find corporate sponsors who want to see this project carried forth, but until then, I am look for 100 micro sponsors who believe in this project and want these cultures documented before it is too late. If I receive the funding, I would love to expand this project: involve other talented photographers, incorporate video stories of people around the world, and continue publishing books and resources that showcase the unique cultures around the world while promoting our shared humanity.

Thanks for considering backing this project!
