What can I say, I geek out over pretty pictures.


But mostly I really just enjoy the feeling of freezing a moment in time and having it as a reminder of who, what & where we were in days gone by.


Each of us has a story to tell, and if I can help others preserve & keep those many precious stories alive, then I consider it a privilege to do what I do, and I intend to keep doing it for as long as I’m able.


Raised on a healthy diet of laughter, adventure, music, Coco Pops & creative expression (in a nutshell), photography was always an interest, but only really become a focus of mine (pun intended) over the last ten years. I’m a firm believer in the philosophy, “You don’t need eyes to see, you need vision”, and not a day goes by that I don’t open myself up to seeing things in a different way, fully aware that it is our perception that ultimately shapes our reality.


We all have a unique view of the world, it’s just about finding ways to leave our own little magical dot on the map.


When it comes down to it, I am an eternal student of life and everything in between. And I intend to never stop learning, seeing, dreaming, telling stories, and appreciating pretty pictures.


I encourage you to do the same.
