Hi! I’m Kelli – a novelist, adventurer, photographer and public health advocate. This website is my journal.

What kind of camera do you use?

I have a Canon Rebel, both print and digital. The majority of my photos are digital. It’s the basic SLR and I don’t think you can get a better photo with as little skill.

What kind of sewing machine do you use?

Singer. The most basic model on the market, essentially. She’s 10 years old and thankfully still kicking. My mama just bought me a fancy new Swedish machine I’m trying to learn too.

Where do you buy your Africankelli sewing labels?

http://www.apparellabels.com.au/ They do an excellent job and are worth every penny.

Why “African” Kelli?

I was in the Peace Corps in Cameroon; I’m an Arizona native, but with many adventures under my belt, I’m African at heart.

Why do you blog?

This started as a place to post my travel photos for friends and family when I was globe hopping as a public health worker. It’s become another entity entirely. I’ve made some great friends through blogging and just hope daily I’m not embarrassing my grandparents or minister with what I decide to post. Otherwise, I keep up with others at Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.
