I received my B.A. in photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2005 and earned certifications in Social Media Marketing as well as SEO in March 2012.
My greatest passions in life are animals, reading, and photography. Animals are an enormous part of my spirit. I enjoy spending time with them, photographing them, talking to them, and comforting them. We just kind of click; I think they can sense how much I care. I strongly believe in respecting animals. By saying that I mean that we as humans should look out for the well-being of all animals, whether that involves raising cage free chickens, free roaming/pasture kept cattle, shutting down puppy mills, or cutting back logging operations that cause deforestation (which in turn leaves countless amounts of wildlife homeless and without a food supply).
My personal motto: Never stop growing, never stop learning, never stop trying to make a difference. I am an artist, an activist, and forever a student. This is my work.
