Photography and interesting stories have always been my hobby. My grandmother put my first camera in my hand when I was 5 and I haven't put it down yet. The first camera was a Kodak 110 then a Polaroid and on to a "movie camera" as they were called in the 70's. I was the only one in the 7th grade who had a "movie camera" for every event and field trips. I became the resident school photographer. Jr. High was my first real schooling in the field of Photography (AV Tech) and now today I am a graduate of New York Institute of Photography.
Over the years I have done many things from being a student and a mom to law-enforcement, real estate even charity work, but the road always leads me to having a camera in one had and a pad and pen in the other.
If there is a story to be told or a picture to be shown I want to be the one who does it. I’m a big believer of equality for all and not a fan of being told what to do or how to do it. Politics and religion are not something that I like to discuss with people, I am set in my way on what I think, I'm not saying I am not open minded what I am saying is that most people don't know what they think when it comes to politics and religion Gandhi said it best, "Those who say religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion is".
My Favorite Quote:
Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, and small minds discuss people. Learn from the mistakes of others, you cant live long enough to make them all yourself. To handle yourself, use your head, to handle others, use your heart, many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart
