I think I have the best job in the world as a PPA Certified Professional Photographer on Maui. Photography is like music to me - different notes, instruments and elements all come together at the right time to create beautiful works of art. What's my style? I try to combine my passion for design, emotion, movement, light and a sense of place to each of my images. I moved to Maui over 28 years ago, and as a Maui photographer have extensive knowledge of the beaches and how the light plays throughout the day. I especially love the "golden hour" in the evenings and how gently the light highlights my subject's faces. In 2008, after several years in the corporate marketing world working for Fortune 500 companies including Nike, Jamba Juice and Starbucks, I pursued my passion and began my career as a professional photographer on Maui.

I have the wonderful opportunity to capture people, places and things at their best every day I go to work and I am blessed with the unique opportunity to be part of milestones in people’s lives. I consider it an honor when someone likes my work and asks me to be part of an important time in their lives. I get to do what I love, people look their best and we all have fun. What’s better than that?

My job as a PPA Certified Professional Photographer on Maui is about passion meeting vision and having great clients as my subjects!

In 2010, I was honored with an invitation to join the talented faculty of Teaching Artists at the esteemed Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center on Maui and I currently teach Photography Workshops at the Hui and PPA Super 1 Day classes in my Studio in Beginning and Intermediate Photography, Macro Photography, Adobe Lightroom, Studio Lighting and Portraiture.

I was also grateful to be asked to assist and teach alongside Maui's own world-renowned photographer, Randy Jay Braun, at his 2010 Tropical Island Boot Camp for Creative Photography on Maui.

2010 also brought the opportunity to join the award-winning cast as the official Still Photographer for Maui's first motion picture comedy filmed on the island entitled "Get a Job" featuring many of Hawaii's top entertainers.

My love of international travel started with a trip to England. Since then, I have lived, worked, studied and traveled to 14 countries on 5 continents. Some of my favorite travel experiences included photographing the mountain gorillas in Uganda, living and diving on Palau, living and working with the Carib Indians in Dominica, diving the coast of Sulawesi, living on the island of Kalymnos in Greece, capturing the people and rural life in Ukraine and photographing majestic New Zealand. I have also enjoyed my adventures in Pohnpei, Kosrae, England, France, Australia, Vietnam, Thailand and Ukraine.
