I'm originally from rural Georgia, a southern state in America, where I lived for 18 years. After living in Hawaii and Washington, D.C. for much of my adult life, I'm now living in Australia with my own family.
I've had a love of photography for as long as I can remember. In fact, I still have some of my grandfather's old Brownie cameras that he used to have! My passion for photography has always been with me, even though I held various (better paying!) jobs [US Marine, Lotus Notes/Internet/Database Programmer, Project Manager] when I was younger. When my twins were born, I spent my time honing my photography skills as well as getting my pilot's license. My Project Pilot AOPA mentor, Jeff Gold, helped encourage me along the way. What can I say, I like a challenge!
In 2007 an opportunity came up to move to Australia and we loved it so much that we decided to stay - and become citizens!
I've been a freelance photographer working in Australia for a while and I primarily work in Adelaide, Sydney and Canberra; I'm able to travel anywhere within Australia to work on photography projects, though my freelance time will be restricted from 2018 onward as I've taken on a staff role with a media company. Due to the nature of my mentally ill relative that is stalking me, I cannot disclose the name of which I will be working under and for whom. It's exciting and promises to be an amazing year with lots of travel opportunities.
