In the beginning I was first inspired to pick up a camera at a very young age by my beloved grandfather. He had a dark room set up in our attic where he developed his own photos and would let me watch him work ...Sadly he passed away when i was seven, but he left a huge impact on me that will last a life time.. His love remains with me and within my own photography captures.
While living in New York and working psych I suffered an unexpected spinal injury that changed my life.... I moved back to Wisconsin, where I was born . I picked up my camera again and started shooting anything and everything that I found interesting.
I never go any where without my camera. While living with level 10 pain and walking with a cane ( at times I use a manual wheel chair ) but when I am out with my camera I forget my pain and feel like I am flying . I found my Passion!! My goals are to inspire others with disabilities to get out and find their passion. You can do it! I Pray my photography warms the hearts and souls of all who view them.
