"I like the smell of earth, the touch of waves, the taste of berries, the sight of trees,
the sound of laughter, and the feeling of being fully alive."
I love being able to capture a moment, a memory, or a beautiful bit of nature. When something catches my eye, my mind instinctively composes the image, and the camera does the rest. Some I keep, many I share, and a few become treasured keepsakes.
I grew up in a family that nurtured the love of books, the importance of reading, and being read to. I couldn’t have known then, but it was instrumental in my becoming a writer. I write every day in some form or another, creating worlds and relationships where anything and everything is possible.
When I step outside of my everyday sphere and comfort zone, a door opens to new, unexpected adventures, and I come away with a greater appreciation for the world and the diverse, amazing people in it. I return home with countless memories and a reminder that near or far, we’re not that different after all.
