I have a love for "all things creative."

I have been a freelance photographer since the 1980s, photographing everything from special events including festivals, art shows and concerts to family portraits, business head shots and non-traditional weddings. I also love hiking in various parts of the country, capturing breathtaking landscapes and wildlife along the way. I'm also a freelance writer and often combine my writing with my photography as a photojournalist and with other creative projects.

My photos have been featured in juried art shows, individual and group exhibits, and have been honored with awards.

I also am a creativity coach and love helping others uncover, recover and discover their own creative talents, whether it's photography, visual arts, jewelry, gourmet cooking or crafts — the possibilities are endless!

When I'm not shooting, writing, coaching or playing music, I'm engaged in running my own public relations firm, The PR Czar® Inc., established in 1997. What can I say? I love my life and life itself!
