As a photographer, I strive to capture the world the way I see it through my lens and share the beauty that some of the seemingly mundane and basic things contain. I feel my calling is to share this amazement with each click of the shutter.
Being an eternal optimist, I see colors brightly, filled with positive messages all around me. Even in the dirtiest of puddles, the most dilapidated of structures, and scruffiest of animals, I find beauty and wonderment. With every snapshot, I expect to capture that “once in a lifetime” experience and nothing excites me more than reviewing my new collection of images, feeling the magic all over again, and discovering nuances I didn’t see the first time around.
With a competitive spirit and a perpetually wandering/inquisitive mind, I’m constantly seeking to master that one challenge I’ve not encountered before. Through research, I draw inspiration from the trendsetters and most accomplished photographers in their respective specialty and challenge myself to make that the standard, even on my first attempt.
Though nature and conservation is my passion, there’s no challenge I won’t attempt at least once as being behind the lens is where I truly feel alive.
My style and subjects will continue to evolve and change, and it brings me great excitement to hone my skills and share the next “shiny object” that grabs the attention of my lens with the world.
Award winning and published photographer, author and entrepreneur. My next goal is to have one of my photos hanging on your wall at home, the office, or anywhere that would bring you joy.
