Photography has always been a passion of my life. I was first inspired by a teacher in high school to look at the world behind the lens. After enlisting into the United States Air Force I was trained in photographic maintenance. Their continued to explore photography working with everything in the photographic process. Anything from taking the picture, processing them and all the way to viewing photos. Starting with 35mm film was the foundation of my photography but now working with digital photography there is a whole new world to explore. Over the last 26 years I have worked as a flight attendant traveling around the world not really getting the chance to photograph the world I get to see. Now as a senior flight attendant I've been committing myself to exploring and recording the places that get to see and learn about. As I continue to exploring new ways of working with photography I hope to be able to share some of my favorite photos with you along my journey. I'm always looking forward to a new adventure so if you have one that you like to be photographed contact me see the world together.
