"I travel to experience the world. I make pictures to capture the essence of the land and the people and to show others how wonderful this world is. There isn't a day that I wake up that I'm not grateful for the opportunity to see and it's even more exciting when I can get out there to photograph it. Photography is about celebrating Life for me and I can find it in the wide open landscape, the intimate heart of a flower, or in the face of a stranger. Sharing what I see is pure joy for me. I teach workshops and lead photo tours internationally as a way of helping others capture the essence of what they see."
