Then: First camera (Kodak Instamatic) + first visit to the Blue Ridge Mountains = begging to stop at each and every single scenic overlook to take pictures.
Now: Different camera, same mountains, same joy at the simple pleasure of capturing light in a magic box.
In the years between, life happened...Kenya, Ghana, Brazil, Mexico, New Zealand, school, sales, server, chief cook and bottle washer, marriage to the most wonderful man on earth, beat reporter, freelance writer, food critic, design consultant, jewelry artist...but in the end it all comes back to this: do what you love, love what you do.
So now, I borrow moments of time, preserve them forever in the form of a photograph, hoping to go beyond words to a place where color and shape, light and shadow tell a story...What story can I help you tell?
