My artistic interests began at a young age. Reading and writing stories introduced me to the concept of painting pictures with words. Early on, I discovered how providing just enough content to encourages a person's imagination to fill in details, and that this method of writing was a powerful way to engage the reader. Drawing and painting provided a similar means of narrating a story to entice participation from the viewer. Naturally, these techniques transfer well to photography. To date, my photographic and written works have been published in dozens of websites, including The Huffington Post and Book More Brides.
