The Louisiana World Tour began in 2011 as a way for me to get back behind a camera and see the world. Inspiration was a hope, mental clarity was another, and in the end I got both those things, and so much more. Traveling around Louisiana's rich and diverse geographic landscape, I gained spiritual insights in Delhi, I faced my fears in Transylvania, and guided by the wisdom of Winnie the Pooh, I found The Way out of the forest in Copenhagen. The story I tell is one of personal experienced and heavily influenced by the Emersonian idea that to travel far - and light - you need not go any further than your own backyard.
