“I probably took my first photo at the age of 7. I had one of those long, skinny film cameras (I think it was pink) that made a wheezing sound when you turned the flash on. It was a far cry from ‘professional,’ but it didn’t matter. I would sit in my backyard and take pictures of my dogs, leaves, flowers, just random stuff. I never had a direction, I just liked the process of
seeing, composing, shooting, developing. 23 years later and I still enjoy that process. It is a constant thrill for me to create images that explain who I am and where I am going with my photographic endeavors. My advice to anyone who has an interest in photography is to slow down and enjoy the creative process. It isn’t all about how many  likes you get. It’s about how you felt taking the pic and what it will mean to you in 30 years.”
