My love for photography began as early as I can remember.  My father was a photojournalist in the United States Army.  He worked on several publications of the Stars and Stripes newspaper, including the Pacific version in Tokyo, Japan and he taught editing classes at the Pentagon.  I can still remember the smell of his pillowed nylon camera bag with it’s many compartments, secret zippers and canisters of film.  I used to love poring over his albums, soaking up every sharp detail.  So for me, photography runs deep.

I grew up near the Washington DC area and moved to Daphne, Alabama in 2016.  It was a long leap, but I truly love it here. It’s so nice to be warm!  In addition to photography, I love to travel, sight-see, beachcomb, and hike.  My favorite food is sushi and steamed blue crabs. I love unsweet tea (gasp!) and any flavored coffee. I love to experience all different cultures and meet new people.  But most of all, I love the sun.  The warmth and color just seems to make everyone joyful.  I appreciate every day I am given and I believe everything in life happens for a reason. And I absolutely cannot wait to meet you!
