The Inertia

I once heard that 8% of people actually keep their New Year’s resolutions. Lucky me. I made a resolution in January of 2011 that I actually would keep. Six months later, it was love at first wipeout. Since then surfing has ruined my life.

In October of 2012, I took a leap of faith. I left my job at a big bank in NYC and moved to Costa Rica to work for surf legend Robert August. When I am not surfing or “twitter-floppy-blogging” for Robert August, I am finding something to photograph. It just so happens that Costa Rica is a photographer’s dream, which enticed me to start designing and selling a line of 100% recycled postcards and notecards, called Samba to the Sea Designs, using my Costa Rican photographs.

Check out my work for RA here, my cards here, and my blog here. And my family thought I would turn into a surf bum… Pura vida, mae.


Only the best. We promise.
