I am a published poet. I aspire to be an AND. And photographer. And capturer-of-light and moment. I am inspired by words and images and want to make picture books for grownups.

I earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch International in London, England, and started taking photos to chronicle my excursions. For the past 20-plus years I've worked in advertising and media where “ideas” are currency.

I shoot a Canon Rebel T5i and can’t say I wasn’t compelled by the name as I've always been susceptible to a dare. My favorite style of photography is macro because that’s where the poetry is: magnifying detail until it resonates. But I experiment with detail in other ways, too. Whatever allows me to create an occasion in the day.
