Meet Piper

 

Nice to Meet You

Right now I live between the cold prairies of North Dakota and the chaos of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and I love it SO much. My life is split between the farm and the fast life, so please contact me with your specific whereabouts before we book to ensure I’ll be in the US/Asia at that time!

Fast Facts About Me

  • My birthday is on Groundhog’s Day
  • When I was little, my brother couldn’t say his r’s, so he and my family called me “Puppy”
  • Bún thịt nướng is my favorite Vietnamese dish
  • I’m from a small farm in rural North Dakota full of horses, goats, rescue dogs, and a flock of ducks
  • I’ve spent hundreds of hours playing long-plot RPGs on the xbox and PS4, and, when I was young, used to do speed runs of Ocarina of Time
  • I speak a lot of languages terribly rather than a few languages very well

As for Photography

Capturing moments grew organically through a combination in an undergraduate degree in broadcast journalism, playing with cameras and videography, and a graduate degree in ethnology (which also dubbed me a “folklorist”!) where I practiced documentation and human connection. While finishing my Master’s in Newfoundland, I heard there was an iceberg along the coast. I was so excited by the visual prospect that I grabbed a friend and a tiny handheld camera and made her pose in the freezing cold and realized: “This is it. This is what I want to do.”
