Like so many people, growing up I took photos on trips and family occasions. When my son was born in 2001, I picked up a DSLR and haven't put it down since. I love capturing the world around me in expressive photographs. My favorite light is natural light but I'm learning to stretch myself with studio lighting more recently.

I've spent years incorporating my personal photographs into artistic scrapbooks. I've recently deepened my love of photos and graphic design when I returned to school, studying at the Savannah College of Art & Design. I look forward to putting all of what I learned into my work.

My favorite subjects are people, whom I love to capture in their natural environment. I also enjoy food photography, as our family owns a wholesale bakery business in Washington, DC. There always seems to be good bread, good food and good company around to photograph.
