I’m a traveling pixel junkie, so to speak. To be more specific, I’m a photographer and graphic designer. I live on the road full-time, which means I have no property or physical address. I am, what you would call, a “technomad,” meaning someone who uses technology to make their “nomad-ness” possible. Why such a crazy lifestyle? Well, I was never into convention, for one. Plus, I thrive on a dynamic and constantly-changing life. After trying to quench my thirst for adventure with a large amount of traveling, plane rides and hotels, this life seemed to just make sense.
I was trying to work out a way to travel full-time when I met Ben, who had been living on the road for four years already. I guess you could say that the planets aligned for us, because the chemistry was there as well as the multitude of things we have in common. I began living on the road with him in the beginning of 2010, and we were married in January of 2013.
We hit anywhere between 15 and 30 states per year, working on the road and shooting as much as possible. My goal with this blog is to share not only travel experiences and amazing destinations, but also my love of photography and other things visual. In addition to this site, The Pixel Diaries, I also have a more complete portfolio site, which shows off my images and design work. You can purchase prints there as well The site is: www.KarenNace.com
My amazing mister is an educator, photographer, author and technomad. He’s been living on the road since 2006 searching out unique places to visit and photograph. He has a passion for vintage America and seeks out that kind of material as we travel around the country. (Needless to say, he’s driven down Route 66 a few times!)
When Ben isn’t on the road, he’s presenting Photoshop and photography seminars all around the world. Luckily for me, he needs a little assistance at those oh=so exotic locations (wink, wink!).
