The quote that I live by:
“Stop waiting for permission to achieve your goals and live your life.”
Have you ever come across a random piece of advice that completely changes your perspective on life? This was it for me (the quote above).
I don’t know who said or penned this sentence, but if I could meet them I would “shake their big toe,” as we say in Dominica. A couple years ago I left a lucrative career in the financial services industry and it was the most difficult thing I've ever had to do. It has also been the most rewarding decision I've ever made. Why?
Because now I am free to create something new everyday, and sometimes what I create becomes bigger than me. I am consistently humbled by the impact my work has on clients and collectors, and that feeling is worth the sacrifice.
If you’re anything like me, you have a deep appreciation of the beauty of the natural world. Through my landscape photography I attempt to convey that beauty as well as the emotions associated with it.
However, I also love to create portraits of individuals and families. Prints of these images are heirlooms that become the foundation of family memories for several years to come.

Enjoying the Journey
What a journey it has been thus far! It has not been easy, but it has never been dull or boring.
I love wearing the varied hats of photographer, visual content creator, digital marketer and entrepreneur. These roles have afforded me several opportunities that I otherwise would have never had.
Ultimately, I hope that my work will continue to inspire others, remind them of fond memories and create value for businesses and their clients.
