A good friend thinks that my passion for life (especially photography, travel, differing cultures, food) should be put out there.

Living in the Seattle area of the Pacific Northwest I tend to see daily life through the rain. Perhaps that explains why I like my pictures to contain lots of color. And being a people person, I want to know what people are like in other countries. If I can convey that through my pictures: success. If I can bring home what I’ve Iearned, I can transplant some of those ideas to my life in Seattle.

When I travel, I want to see and taste what people eat and drink. If it’s different from home, so much the better. I truly believe that if you don’t care about where someone lives, what they eat and drink, maybe you shouldn't travel. But if my photography can excite you to get on a plane and see and feel what I do, you might begin to understand as I do.

Enjoy the journey. And let me know what you think! And buy a momento.
