I have had a camera in my hand since I can remember. I think 5 years old. Our family historian for sure. My work background is Finance, Real Estate. About 5 years ago I aggressively attacked learning how to post process to elevate the look of my photos. Took many other fine art photography classes...what a difference 100's of hours make.
10 year late stage Breast Cancer Survivor. Grew up in NJ at the Jersey Shore. Moved to CA in 1983...moved back to NJ in late 2016. I am married, have two handsome adult sons and our ladbradoodle Lakai. Currently living the life I was born to live - Ikigai!
“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.” Jack London
