Fun Facts About Yours Truly
I rode my bicycle across America!
my dog truly is my best friend
My husband and I skipped on the large wedding...
I've upgraded my wheels
I’m a GeekY girl and proud of it
(Yes, I met THE Doug Chiang! The second photo is of my friends and I with Josh McDermitt, the guy who plays Eugene in The Walking Dead)
When I was litte, I was obsessed with Ariel & Belle. As I grew up, I became obsessed with Power Rangers & Ninja Turtles. Fast forward to today and I’m obsessed with Tarintino films, Ghostbusters, and most obviously STAR WARS to name a few. Though I haven’t started cosplaying quite yet, I do enjoy taking photos of other cosplayers and going on troops with my local 501st legion to capture the beautiful moments they create with those who need hope.
The reason I live…
Social Justice has always been on my heart. I love telling empowering stories that will encourage people to look beyond themselves to better serve humanity. Though I am currently taking a break from traveling due to health, it is now my mission to encourage business owners to create sustainable and valueable content that can help make changes in their communities.
Humanitarian Photography is my jam and I honestly wish I could do more of it! I’ve been to Haiti twice after the 2010 Earthquake and lived in China for 2 months after their major earthquake in 2008. I’ve also been able to work with several non-profits including Paralyzed Veterans of America, Mission of Hope Haiti, Limbitless Solutions, and Orlando Healthcare for the Homeless. I also had the opportunity to film a short documentary for my friends with Live//Alive.
