    Description

    Hello! I am from San Diego, California relocated to NOLA now for 13 years. I am a photographer, work photography adventure travel and run a community based arts nonprofit with an emphasis in photography. I've owned a home in New Orleans for 7 years now and continuously need help with small projects. The nonprofit needs help with research, grant-writing and capacity building projects. We can offer everything you want to know about photography!

    I've been getting quite a few requests with interest in the non-profit which makes me realize I should try to set up a residency! I wish I could host everyone! If you find another place but would still like to get involved with the photo community in New Orleans.

    -I need a new personal website

    I have a rich garden with lots of herbs and hopefully veggies! I have a music room with a guitar, ukulele, bass, keyboard, tons of books and photo books, old film cameras and a lot of photography knowledge to pass along if I’m home.

    The space: My house is a duplex but I'm renting one side since coronavirus. You would have your own room with a private entrance on my side of the house where I stay in the other room when I’m home. It’s a shared bathroom.

    I'm also down to practice Spanish.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can connect you to a photo community. I can teach about photography or about running an arts nonprofit if I’m available but I’m not always around. I can definitely connect you to a community that can teach those things. You'd have access to instruments, books and a garden.

    My wifi is the best New Orleans can offer.... but that's still the best New Orleans can offer. I have worked from home for the past 10 years so when I'm home I also need the wifi working. Cox has a monopoly in New Orleans so they dgaf There is a desk in the bedroom or a kitchen table or a coffee table or a lounge. Whatever you prefer. I usually post up at the kitchen table.
