yes. that kid with the camera is me.

ME

I love the world... born: Rocky Mountains of Colorado, grew up: Rochester, New York, lived in: Slovakia, Ireland, New Zealand, Thailand, Germany and I have now returned back to Rochester with my little daughter.

I enjoy talking, connections, interesting conversation and playing. Kids make me laugh! I am a teacher, musician, traveler and lover of people. Tell me a story...

MY PHOTOGRAPHY

My work personality can be described as calm, yet extremely thorough and organized. I am subtle, but do not miss a moment. I enjoy capturing that look, moment, expression or smile that should not be missed. I am stubbornly dedicated to excellence and your satisfaction. It is important that you are not concerned at all so that we can enjoy our time together.

I like to think of my style as ever-changing… crisp, but organic & natural, light-focused. I have two very different worlds that exist through my camera.

The first is when I search, experiment, express and chase after moments on the street, through the woods, or throughout a new country, in order to capture a picture that will show/tell my story of adventure and interactions with people and the environment.

The second is when I am granted the honor of telling someone else's story. While working on those commissioned works, I encounter a fun, different and wonderful task - to express, through my lens (or eyes), what others are experiencing… their story.

As an Art teacher of 14 years, I can't think of a better combination of artistic expression, both aspects very different, and very rewarding. I enjoy NEW: new places, new people, new moments in time, new ways of visual storytelling and new ways of seeing life.

WILL I TRAVEL FOR WORK?

Absolutely. Travel is my passion so I welcome inquiries from far and beyond! I am available to travel worldwide (anywhere!) from my home base in Rochester, New York. I speak English and German!
