Meet Piper

Nice to Meet You

Right now I live in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and I love it SO much. Between the heat, spice and chaos, I’ve never been happier than I am with my life in SE Asia.

Some 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

– I play way too many video games

– I speak a lot of languages terribly rather than a few languages very well

As for photography

it grew organically after an undergraduate degree in broadcast journalism, playing with cameras and videography, and a graduate degree in ethnology, practicing documentation and human connection. Then one day in Newfoundland, I grabbed a friend and a camera and made her pose in front of an iceberg, and said, “This is it. This is what I want to do.”
