I am an amateur photographer and love to be outside capturing authentic moments and creating artful compositions. I love to create photos that cause the viewer to look and look again, to find a sense of intrigue, and to be curious about the story and the subject. My professional background is in environmental conservation. I believe that my skills of observation and documentation developed professionally, have informed my evolving sense of aesthetic, composition, and art, to find special moments in photography. I am working to expand my knowledge, experience and audience.
