Although I've had a 20 year career as a photographer, I've rarely entered a photo contest but LensCulture has been a ongoing inspiration to me and I would love to be part of that community of excellence. I am a editorial and commercial photographer in Orange County California. I have a undergraduate degree in journalism from Michigan State University and graduate work in fine art photography at San Francisco Art Institute. I published a book of women motorcyclists in 2009. I believe all human beings have a great story in them and photography is my tool to unearth it.
