I am an award-winning photographer based in Texas. Nature inspires me to get outdoors and photography allows me to capture the moment that I encounter along my journey. My goal with photography is to capture those amazing colors of the world and by doing so remind people how incredible our planet is!
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Information System and I’ve been in the IT field since May 2000, unwillingly. Although it pays the bills, I have always longed for a career that I had passion for. Things have not always worked out like I planned, but I think they have all worked out for the better as most things do. I’ve always been a very artsy person by nature. I guess I’m half right brained & half left brained so at times I have conflicts about this and everything else.
Some awards I have been very fortunate to have won and definitely would not be possible without the support of my amazing husband, my 2 Yellow Labradors who gives me lots of wet kisses everyday, and my wonderful family!
