I’ve been a photographer since childhood. I took every photography class offered at Arapahoe Community College back in the 1990’s, just before the conversion to digital. (of course!) The basics of photography haven’t changed, but the implementation of functions continues to evolve and we must evolve with it! I have continued my photography education in the digital age by attending workshops, seminars and classes offered by other photographers that I have admired and also through studying books and magazines. Over the years I have won photography contests, had my work shown in galleries and other venues and been published in places as diverse as Cowboys & Indians Magazine and Science of Mind Magazine. Mostly, photography is a form of mindfulness meditation for me, which provides me the opportunity to move “from time … to timelessness” while in nature.
In addition to my photography practice, I have also been a musician for most of life. I sing and play guitar and piano. I’ve written some songs, in the Folk/Americana tradition. I’ve played in churches, coffee shops, concert halls and festivals over the years. I’m inspired by singers and songwriters such as Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell. I’m staying home for now because of the coronavirus, but when the age of coronavirus is over, I’ll be available to sing and play at your church, coffee house or festival. I’m about ¾ of the way through the making of a mini 6-song CD and I’ll keep you posted.
I’m a writer and a blogger, focusing on the areas of spiritual development, implementing new life skills, and occasionally some travel reports and stories of my photo expeditions around “God’s country” – aka Colorado and Utah. I have a couple of books in the works, and hope to have them finished soon. Life is good!
I hold two degrees from Regis University, a Jesuit school located in Denver, Colorado. A double Bachelor’s degree in HR Management and Applied Psychology and a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership. In 2017, retired from a 25+ year career in Human Resources to focus my attention on my artistic and spiritual pursuits.
