My name is Fata Morgana.

I am a nomad. You can also find me here. I’ve told 17 stories. I joined Cowbird on May 20, 2013.

I am on an extraordinary journey around the globe aboard our 38 feet catamaran Fata Morgana, exploring natural and cultural sites of interest, living off grid, volunteering, making art for social change, and writing stories as-we-go about the people we encounter and the places we visit .

We have left behind work, school, home, and all those things that give us some false sense of security and comfort in order to find alternative ways of experiencing the world. We are now officially in a pursuit of happiness and adventure.

I enjoy each rare moment of silence and solitude. I am not very practical, I am more interested in the surreal, abstract, ephemeral, and magical, than the present or logical. I tend not to remember important things like dates or phone numbers, but would memorise a line from a book or a film or a poem. I am also a bit naive, easily impressed, and curious. I am most interested in people and their stories as well as places and their histories. I am not interested in the luxurious but rather in the authentic.

In 2012 I have graduated from Concordia University, Montreal in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program, major Photography, minor Spanish taking various classes in Art History and Painting as well. I wanted to learn Spanish in order to be able to read my favourite author Gabriel Garcia Marquez in Spanish. Thanks to my Spanish classes I also learned about Latin American history, geography, culture, politics, and literature, and I can’t wait to explore the region with my photo camera. I am passionate about various photographic practices and techniques, but most interested in social documentary photography and portraiture. In my work, I am looking at the world around me seeing it through my imagination.
