My name is Katy, if you haven’t picked up on that already. I am a photographer/blogger based in Yorktown, VA. Since I can remember I have always been extremely passionate about photography and writing. During high school I spent a lot of time on Tumblr, being exposed to a platform where I could freely speak my mind and share my work was absolutely thrilling. That’s what really got me thinking about starting a blog, here we are 5 years later and I am finally at a place in my life where I would like to continue to share my story and my travels. At 19 I impulsively left home, drove myself across the country to San Diego, CA to experience something completely different than I had ever known. During my 2 years on the West Coast, I was able to find what truly drives me and have a better understanding myself. Being back home again, I am ready to start chasing my dreams and documenting my experiences along the way. Originally when starting this blog I wanted it to be about whatever I wanted to speak on- I still feel that way, but I’m more focused on using it as an educational resource for anyone willing to read. I am extremely passionate about conservation efforts for our planet and more specifically our oceans. I hope you all enjoy being apart of these moments as much as I have enjoyed sharing them with you!
