My love of photography began with my first Kodak Instamatic camera, the one with the cube flash. I find the process of capturing the beautiful world around me fascinating. After taking hundreds of thousands of photos over the years, I find sharing them is a large part of the joy of being a photographer. One of the most beautiful and unique landscapes to photograph are those in Northern Michigan. I wonder at the photos I am able to take in every season. I have a special focus on night photography, especially the Northern Lights, or aurora. I also have been designing jewelry for over ten years. It is a secondary love of mine.
