I am many things.

Photographer. Mother. Poet. Runner. Lover. Dreamer. Explorer. Imp. Survivor.

I love many things.

Art. Poetry. Nature. Food. Wine. Music. Humor. Laughter. Tears. Life.

While I feel it sometimes, as any empathic human, I fight the leanings of hate. Hate, while valid, is a destructive force.

I cherish being alive and am unapologetic about who I am. I create to express; I live to create.


I teach photography classes!

My main skill sets are Photography & Writing. I’m a flexible, think-outside-the-box social media power user. I’m available for hire to shoot, write, speak, and lead photowalks. I am based in Austin, TX, but greatly enjoy traveling.

Above all I am an artist, a creative soul. I won’t accept jobs that I feel are not a fit to my energy and center. It’s best for both of us that way. :-)


Past Work:

Co-marketing & Show Coordinator for Drink and Click™ and the co-leader, along with the Founder – Juan Gonzalez, of the Austin Drink and Click™ Chapter Photowalks.

Co-host a weekly photography show with Thomas Hawk called Photo Talk Plus.
