For now, Chania feels as like home and I love the fact that wherever I am in the municipality, adventure is never far away – at sea, up in the mountains, and in the city. Most of all I love the friendliness of its people. As a year round resident, I find beauty in all of Chania’s seasons – especially the brief but beautiful winter. When I am not working, you’ll find me out and about: hiking, diving, or simply exploring. In the summer, I’m usually on the beach or in the water. Winter, however, is an excellent time to take to the mountains and enjoy the gorges in the area.
“Crete, and especially Chania, has such a rich and varied landscape…a lifetime wouldn’t be enough time to explore it all.”
What started as a way to share the beauty of Crete to my friends and family back in the US became my passion and possibly even a future career. I am especially intrigued by drone photography, which can offer unique views of even the most familiar places. Photography on social media has given me the platform to connect with many locals as well as with people from around the world, opening up new project opportunities, collaborations and even friendships
Of course my experience in Chania wouldn’t be the same without my best friend! Argos was a stray dog that I found as a puppy. Together we’ve traveled all over Crete. I couldn’t ask for a better adventure buddy.
