I am an observer of life and teller of stories - stories which have impact. My eyes wander, seeing all around me as my ears listen to the sounds and the voices. Born with an insatiable curiosity to learn and specifically to learn about others, I am drawn to traveling near and far. I see and capture moments in time - colors, shapes, feelings, moods, expressions, and relationships. My life is a journey and I share it through my art whether it is film, photography, art, poetry, prose or story. I invite my audience, reader, viewer into my world to see what I see, to feel what I feel, and often finding their own personal connection and experience. It is my mission to help, enlighten, entertain and bring knowledge and joy to others.
