On a Personal Note
I love what I do! I travel the world and experience new things, make new friends and see what other professional photographers and artists are doing. I learn so much and truly enjoy sharing. When I have “off” time, you will find me outside exploring, taking pictures and rejuvenating my spirit through nature. I draw, paint, write (I wrote a novel last year!) and enjoy collaborating with other creative people for fun, profit and the benefit of others.
