Meet Maureen.

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world.

Have you ever had that feeling that you were born to do something else?  Yet, you tried other conventional methods because it was the norm.  But, life kept pulling you in another direction until you stopped ignoring it and finally followed your passion. That is what photography is for me.  It’s my life’s passion.  

Let’s start at the beginning.

Let’s start at the beginning. I was born in Germany and raised in the United States since the age of four. I caught the travel bug early in life by spending many of my summer holidays visiting my relatives in Germany, exploring neighboring European countries, and sampling their delicious local cuisines. When I was twelve, I picked up my first camera, and I haven’t put a camera down since. I took my first photography class at the age of fourteen, where I truly fell in love with this visual art form. 

Move to Asia.

After graduating from college with a degree in business administration specializing in marketing, I went to Australia, where I worked as a market researcher. Once I returned to the US, I continued my marketing career for twelve years. I then moved to Asia with my family and have lived in Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, and Singapore. My curiosity and enthusiasm for experiencing new cultures and meeting new people have lead me to visit over twenty countries. I truly am an explorer at heart.

My passion for photography.

As a Professional Photography graduate of the Photography Institute, I continue my passion for photography while pushing the boundaries of my creativity.   My camera has become one of my life’s companions that always accompanies me on my journey. I continue to document my life, and especially my travels through my camera’s lens, still searching for those unique shots that capture those special moments in time. I enjoy sharing my travel experiences and my love of good food by writing my blog. I hope my travel stories will entice others to explore the roads less traveled, try new cuisines, and embark on unique adventures while making new local friends along the way.
