My passion for color and design started as a child. I loved the subtleties of colors and textures in nature. I saved sea shells, feathers, pinecones, rocks...nature was an endless array of rhythm, pattern and color and I was fascinated with every "treasure" I came across. Fast-forward through college, an AAS in graphic design (which included a year of pre-digital photography), a few "learn-the-ropes" creative jobs, and I was a successfully self-employed designer. I loved design and photography, but design won out until the arrival of digital photography. After many years as a graphic designer and photo hobbiest, I left my old 35mm film Nikon for my first digital Olympus. A number of years and a variety of cameras later, and I've never looked back.
I shoot lifestyle portraits and events. I love capturing the many moods and expressions of people as they interact with their surroundings and other people. Other photo opps I enjoy are nature, urban or rural landscapes, architecture, and macro-style shots. The designer in me still loves "collecting" color, pattern and detail.
