Tamarindo, Costa Rica –

Four years ago I hopped on a plane to Costa Rica. It was my first trip to this beautiful country and my first surf trip. Little did I know, this week long vacation full of surfing and pouring rain was that “road diverged in a yellow wood”.  A year later I was back on a plane to Costa Rica, this time to live full time in Tamarindo. Fast forward three years later, I am in awe and disbelief.

Samba to the Sea has always been about following my dreams and living life to the fullest. What has resulted is being able to surf everyday, a growing photography business (with photo sessions for a glowing Kara, Justin, and their baby bump this past week), and over 7,000 postcards/ cards/ mini cards sold with Samba to the Sea Designs. Oh what a couple years it has been! Thank you to my supporters, critiques, and disbelievers; Y’all have made me stronger and wiser.
