I've been shooting all my life, but got serious in 2001 and have been going ever since. I took a correspondence course from the New York Institute of Photography, which taught me SO much! I use Nikon 35mm cameras (N90s film, D100 and D70) with Nikon, Sigma and Tokina lenses, Cokin filter systems, and lots of other toys. You can never have enough! I enjoy all aspects of photography and like to try anything at least once.

I have a wonderful husband and am a proud military spouse. We have three cats (cassie, Cheeto & Conan) and a Pug named Sitka - they're just like having kids! You can see their photos in my gallery. We currently live in the Washington, DC metro area (thank you, Army), which is where we came after the stint in Alaska. What a beautiful place!

When I moved here, I had only entered contests on and some other web sites. Now, I've entered several juried competitions with several finalists and some winners. I've had images published in Alaska magazine, along with a contest winner. And I am finally a full-time professional photographer - what could be better?
