My joy is photographing people: curious and adorable children, productive teens evolving into young adults and active seniors throughout the world. Focusing on skills, educational processes and community involvement gives me an understanding of global cultures. Through my travels,I have focused on landscapes, ethnic cultures and flowers. Climbing temples in Cambodia,waterfalls in Argentina,ruins at Machu Picchu in Peru and sleeping on boats in Vietnam, visiting villages for micro-credit help for women in India, participating in archaeological digs in Majorca and celebrating regattas in Venice have enhanced the photographic adventures I have had. My previous career as an actress in theater and film prepared me to communicate with ease behind the camera capturing images of all ages for assignments in magazines,public relations and corporate advertising. Through stock agencies, non-profits, advertising and textbooks companies, my photography has been seen for over 20 years on billboards, books and in brochures.
