A close friend of mine once said that the thing she thought set me apart from everyone else
was that I collected beauty – in people, in artwork, in photos, in teapots and household items.
No matter what I do, I try to collect beauty.
I have played Dungeons and Dragons and have a huge geek board game collection.
(Favourites include: Citadels and Apples to Apples)
I have LARPed, cosplayed multiple times, and attended several cities’ Comicons.
I watch every superhero movie and TV show that comes out.
The sounds of anime are currently floating from my kitchen where hubby is making supper.
He might be reading a comic
When the world seems to be caving in, I am always realistic – but I am also always hopeful.
I am not the kind of person who is just positive all the time. I just have hope for every day.
I am a practicing Catholic, and love the spiritual and mystical side of life as much as I love science.
I love research and logic and dancing in the rain. I have been accused of having Spock-like qualities
and certainly Sheldon-like radar for the best seat in the house.
Not only do I know how to take photographs, I am also quite good at drawing, printmaking,
sculpture in wood, glass, and found objects and more. My favourite art genre is personal conceptual
gallery art, like French artist Sophie Calle’s “Take Care of Yourself” collection.
It’s probably safe to say that over the course of my career I have shot over 100,000 photos professionally.
I have backup gear just in case and I use a special lens bag to make sure I can always get the shot.
I’ve trained from the best, and now I train photographers how to run their business.
I speak at photography conferences and coach photographers to improve
their companies through time management and business training.
