Born in Chicago, moved to Florida, moved to Washington, moved back to Florida. I’m currently in a state of flux, an oscillation of spirit that moves me from one experience to the next.
That’s my Jeep in the photo. It’s the second one I’ve owned and one of my greatest joys.
Expert analasys: “She has a gentle stubborn streak that, at certain times, convinces her to resist attempts to throw her off course. In a rather pleasant way, she’s more likely to knuckle down in such situations and just keep on going without making a huge fuss about it. This level of benign resilience, coupled with her desire to make things happen, will take her far. I’d describe her attitude as ready for anything. Or “pleasantly aggressive.” She has spunk, she has bounce and drive. And she has a busy mind that flies off in all directions, together with a complicated matrix of emotions swirling beneath, fueling her activities. Channeling this complex cloud of internal activity, somehow she succeeds in finding her way.”
THIS is who I am:
I care about the planet and it’s present and future – I example that in the way I eat, live, and work.
I love animals – all animals, not just the fuzzy kind and I example that by not exploiting them in any way, and that includes not eating them.
I enjoy life – I don’t sweat the small stuff, fly off the handle, or otherwise dance with stress. I example that in how I live each day.
I’m an author, writer, photographer, yoga teacher, lover, fighter, vegan, eco-freak, and purveyor of all things natural.
As a professional photographer for many years, my lens was in my hand and what I used to capture outside moments. As a writer, the lens is different, and I look into it this time, reflecting back the experiences that make us human. Throughout my own life, the lens has changed over time, and these days, I strive to serve other humans by sharing what I’ve learned in order to create a balanced, impassioned life. Life shouldn’t be hard, it doesn’t have to be. I love to show people why…and how.
My life and work are about maximizing who I am while minimizing what I’m not. I hope you make time for what’s important, and leave the rest behind.
