I am an artist, author, and speaker that connects teenagers and adults with wildlife and nature so that they can live a peaceful life with valor and vulnerability (including dignity, love, compassion, and connection).
I have always loved animals and wildlife. I can't remember a time in my life where I wasn't drawn to any animal (well...complete transparancy, I didn't and still don't like bugs or spiders very much and slimmy fishes... but even though I didn't like them, I still cried whenever any of the older kids pulled the legs off the daddy long legs).
In 6th or 7th grade, I asked my parents for a camera for Christmas. With a camera, I figured I could really get closer and study the animals. And so my love affair with animals and photography began.
Even today, too many years to count later, you can still find me with my camera in hand, just enjoying and watching the animals. Yes, most of the time, I photograph, but I enjoy the moment to with just my eyes and ears and sometimes my skin. Many times I cried tears of laughter and others tears of sadness while I watched the lives of these magnificent creatures unfold before me.
It is my dream to use my stories and photography to raise awareness and to help them in any possible way.
