I’m a traveler, photographer, storyteller and blogger.
Above all else, I believe if you follow your heart and do what you’re passionate about, opportunities will present themselves.
Once upon a time, I worked behind a desk and longed for my two weeks of annual vacation time. Finally, I took a leap of faith.
My girlfriend, Carrie, was volunteering in Nicaragua. I quit my job, sold my stuff, and joined her.
My plan was to visit for two weeks; I stayed seven months.
In the years since, we have traveled near and far, lived in the USA and Thailand, supported each other’s dreams and said “I do!”
This brings me back to my belief about following your passions.
I’ll admit it; I spend my life in a tug-of-war between two worlds. On one hand, I crave the stability and comfort of a traditional life back in the USA.
Yet, I love spending my days creating digital photographic art, writing stories, updating this Web site, putting myself out there and seeing what comes of it.
So far, so good.
My photographic work has been featured in galleries, magazines, books, Web sites, newspapers and exhibitions around the world.
Last fall, I was hired by Samsung to present my work at Photokina – the world’s largest photo trade fair.
Most recently, I filmed a TV show with National Geographic Channel in South Korea.
While I’m incredibly proud of these personal accomplishments, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the amazing support I receive from friends like you.
So, from the bottom of my heart, I say thank you!
Enough about me; I want to get to know you!
What are your passions? Where was your favorite vacation? Can I see some of your photography? I love meeting people and cherish the friendships that have formed through this site; so, please find me on Facebook and say hi!
Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day: wherever you are.

To my father, Daniel Goodman: whose love, excitement and passion for travel rubbed off on me at a very young age.
To my mother, Bonnie Goodman: an incredible artist who always has encouraged my creative spirit and continues to support my dreams on a daily basis.
And, of course, to Carrie Goodman: my darling, wonderful, beautiful, amazing, inspirational, creative, funny, supportive and adventure-instigating wife, muse and love of my life.
