Publication News: International Living Magazine (June 2012) & International Living Travel Article Series

I’m excited to share two of my latest photo and article publication news:

1) Photo & text in the June 2012 print issue of International Living Magazine.

You can view the scan below or the PDF here.

This is the image that was selected and published in the New York Times Magazine contest not long ago.  I’m thrilled to that thousands more subscribers will be reading about the African-influenced Garifuna culture found in Belize and other parts of Central America.

2) My first piece in a series of upcoming articles for International Living’s website, on how my >> travel photography and writing helped fund my travels & my expat bouts every year. Click on the image or this link to read the article.
