Hi, I'm Nina!

I'm a lifestyle & travel photographer and destination marketing specialist based in the Tampa Bay Area. With my love of supporting locally and independently owned businesses and my affinity for travel and tourism I started this blog, The Exploress (and the hashtag #Exploress). 


The mission is simply to inspire and educate. I want to encourage women (and men) around the globe to travel with an emphasis on lifestyle and local culture. Together we create a unique community of individuals who aspire to live a more cultured life – sharing our travel experiences and lifestyles.


Living. Learning. Exploring.
