We are well traveled, flexible and find it easy to relate with people and places of all backgrounds and statuses, which enables us to break many cultural barriers and find out a destination’s best-kept secrets. While documenting a trip, we often hear, “We saw your posts and now we’re going there!” Through our social media accounts, we have influenced many to follow our footsteps globally. We feel as comfortable in five-star luxury hotels as we do in campsites with no running water. We have traveled to over 20 countries together.

About Aaron and Naomi:
Aaron and Naomi met on Instagram, back in the app’s early days. At the time, Aaron was living in Bushwick and would frequently post photos of his neighborhood’s graffiti murals. Naomi wrote an article on graffiti and featured Aaron’s photography on MTV International. Their romance quickly moved offline and prospered into what it is today. She’s the writer; he’s the photographer. Both are equally artistic and eccentric. Their combined skills have brought their individual pursuits to greater heights.
Naomi was born in Indonesia—to odd soul mates: a Javanese countess and palace dancer and a quixotic, New Yorker, poet/activist dad—and moved to NYC when she was eleven. Naomi wears many hats - writer, editor, teacher, art director and event planner - tied by one common denominator: she tells stories.
Aaron is a self-taught artist and photographer; he was born in Southeast Texas and moved to New York City pursue his art. An ‘80s enthusiast, Aaron collects VHS, old TVs, and ephemera.
