Summary

My work is a way to get to know myself and the world around me. I capture stories that make my heart sing. Real stories by real people with passion and heart for life. People who share stories that speak of hope, of courage, of wonder and of beauty. I pursue the spark of joy that excites us to change, the spark that reconnects us with our sense of wonder. I follow the threads of my stories across the world, because I believe a good story can bring people together and inspire us to dream a more beautiful world into being.
