I’m a full-time writer and photojournalist based in Austin, Texas 

Snippets of my story:

  • I spent from 1995 to 2004 writing about music for various magazines, newspapers and record companies
  • I switched careers in 2005 and became a professional photographer, which gave me the freedom to go back to school
  • That career transition resulted in my earning a Bachelor of Arts in English, Writing and Rhetoric
  • Mrs. Miller (my eighth grade English teacher) told me I should learn a skill because I wasn’t smart enough to go to college. I graduated summa cum laude 
  • I made my living as a professional wedding and portrait photographer for eight years
  • Austin is my hometown
  • I've formally reviewed more than 200 children’s storybook apps for iPad
  • Photographing feet is one of my favorite hobbies
