Some adopt Guatemalan babies. I adopt Chinese medicine chests, Italian art, and French mid-century chairs.

Hi, my name’s Amanda and I’m a sucroholic.

I crave sugar with the equivalent intensity of a marginal heroin addict. The first step is admitting you have a problem. I’m not sure you’re supposed to be okay with the problem, however. I’m working on it. (Not really.)

In less than 3 decades my life has been in many ways parallel with Jeanette Walls and The Glass Castle. One day I’ve committed I’ll pen the story of my unhinged life. Until then I’ve new chapters to create.

Before I became a photographer I was a violinist and violist. No, I’ve never been good at Linear Algebra.

The Eiffel Tower, The Great Pyramids, The Leaning Tower are impressive but I travel to experience. There’s nothing more inspiring to me than sharing an authentic moment in a new city with someone I love.

And the photos? Oh, the photos there are…
