Life,  Without  Borders.

Hi! We’re David & Lori.

We live a nomadic life. We do work around the world to help improve people’s lives. We photograph and write about it. And now, we’re doing it all with a baby in tow.

Come along for the ride as we share our adventures, misadventures, and what we’ve learned along the way!
