Tessa is an avid photographer, freelance writer, and ESL teacher based in the Seattle area. She explores the world through her camera lens and her taste buds, and is always up for adventure (and good food). She is captivated by people’s stories and the building blocks that construct our identities. Her personal blog highlights traveling with kids and food allergies, nature, and adventures near home and across the globe. Her travel photography spans multiple continents and countries: From the remote deserts in New Mexico to the hill tribe villages of Northern Thailand. In her free time, you can find Tessa hiking any mountain that calls to her, cooking something delicious, or chasing her wild child in the great outdoors.
