Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
-- Rachel Carson
At an early age, I had a love of photography. As a graduation present from college, I received my first 35 mm camera. I soon discovered it opened a whole new realm of possibilities.

A View from the Other Side of the Lens
As a professional model for over 20 years, Iíve had the opportunity to work with some of the best photographers in the business. From technical aspects of the camera, the use of natural light, to a full appreciation of the creative process, the knowledge Iíve gained from working with these professionals has been invaluable.

Global Perspective
I was fortunate to live and work in some of the most beautiful cities in the world: Paris, Munich, London, Sydney, Miami, Chicago and San Francisco. Traveling the world has left lasting impressions on me, many of which I have captured through my images.

Natural Approach
My approach to photography is natural; from my preference to shooting only film, to my love of using natural light. I provide my clients with digital files, but the richness in color and contrast of film will always be compelling to me.

Whether I am shooting the delicate layers of a flower, an oak tree on a preserve, or a cafť in Paris, I find beauty in everything. My passion is to reveal it through the lens of my camera.
