Originally from Brandon, Vermont I am currently living outside of Boulder Colorado. My interests are in photography, writing, travel, climbing, biking, hiking, and all things outdoors. I love working with animals and working out, especially yoga. I recently graduated from Colorado Mesa University with a BA in Mass Communications- Photojournalism. I love meeting new people and traveling to new places. I love South American culture and have been to Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Argentina. I am hoping to continue to travel and explore Europe as my next adventure. Please check out my photography page at http://carolyndean.photoshelter.com/. Hope you enjoy my writing!
