I am a photographer from the beautiful Pacific Northwest in the United States. I enjoy photographing mostly people and pets, but occasionaly try my hand at landscapes. I always try to tell a story with each image I create. The creative process for me usually begins with a specific idea, BUT I have often detoured from my original plan to get some of my favorite images. I took a break from photography for about 7 years (including this site), and I am now back enjoying the creative process again.
