BC: My blessings seem endless. I live in an amazing place with amazing opportunity. I feel forever grateful to have had the opportunity to spend a year of my life living in the Swiss alps in 2007 and again in the French alps during 2009. The photos in this book represent the convergence of my love of photography with my insatiable desire to travel, and has played a huge role in who I am today. At the time of printing this book (Oct 2011), I have been to ~20 countries and am constantly reminded of the quote “We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”
