It all started with a trip to Sapa, Vietnam in 2011.  With 72hrs notice, I jumped on a plane with a team of tourism professionals and student volunteers to document the affects tourism is having on the ethnic minorities in the region, and to deliver training to try to prevent culture loss.

Five years later and we're continuing to work in the villages of Ta Phin and Lao Chai, where the Red Dao and Black Hmong ethnic minority groups call home.  Since then, I've had the pleasure of creating multiple videos to share these villagers' unique stories to the world.
