When digital cameras and cell phones hit the market everyone became a photographer, but I was born to be an ARTIST.
The need to constantly create is hardwired into my DNA. I started making art from the moment I could hold a crayon, but I got my first camera for Christmas at 7 years old. It was pink, plastic, shot 110 film and it changed the entire course of my life.
I would run around the house taking pictures of anything that would hold still. Waiting to get the film developed was the longest hour of my life! Even now, my subject matter may have changed from my pet hamster and flowers in my parents' yard to sailboats and the streets of NYC, but that feeling of satisfaction I get every time I hear the click of the shutter is still there.
Writing came into my life years later when I started my first journal. That love of writing down all the juicy details of my pre-teen life grew into a desire to tell stories. I've only ever wanted to be a photographer and an artist but over the years I've become a STORYTELLER.
There are days when I question my sanity for choosing this path, but I absolutely love what I do. I am incredibly grateful that I get to live my life in pursuit of my passion and I hope that people can see that in every image I create.
This is my story, now let me help you tell yours.
