About Me: I’m a photographer/actor/artist/adventure-seeker with a love for being involved in all-things creative. I’ve been taking pictures since 2012 after receiving my first DSLR camera as a gift -- photography gave me a sense of purpose where there was none & I quickly became obsessed with the new hobby. (for years prior, I floundered around not knowing what to do with my life - I was seemingly happy but felt unfulfilled & wanted more.) -- 2012 was a big turning point for me -- It was the year I stopped smoking cigarettes, found purpose, & took control of my life and future. I had big adventures, became closer with my spouse & family, made new friends, reconnected with old friends, & found numerous ways of expanding and pushing my own personal boundaries.
It’s been a journey and since that time my creative work has appeared in dozens of printed & digital publications some of which are listed below.
As it does, one creative endeavor leads to another -- Spring of 2017 I participated as background talent&stand-in for National Geographic's mini-series, “The Long Road Home”. Being involved in that particular show had touched me so deeply. I re-felt some very powerful & very real emotions. This was my first time on a movie set and as wife of a combat veteran this one really hit home. I fell in love with the idea of acting during this shoot and since then have attended acting classes, been involved in a number of television shows/commercials and will continue to pursue acting as a career.
In addition to these creative ventures I enjoy selling vintage jewelry and some of my artwork in store & online. I run two online shops and sell locally at one of the antique stores in downtown Belton, Texas.
