Based in the Colorado Springs, Colorado area.
Experience listed HERE.
First and foremost, I am a storyteller. I tell my stories through writing, pictures, and speaking. In this space, I write about life and my perspective, share photography (business and personal), and seek the light.
I work as a freelance writer and photographer (I no longer run a full-time photo business but rather freelance when available), and I speak to schools and groups about domestic violence, teen dating, healthy relationships, survival, thriving, and more.
I am also the Client Advocacy Director at CHOICES Pregnancy Center in Woodland Park, CO, where I’ve been working since September 2015 (and volunteering since 2009).
I am married to my best friend, and we have three grown children, three bonus children, three amazing grandchildren, and a very rich extended family of friends.
I am gravity-challenged and know how to take a fall. Likewise, I have learned how to fall down in life and when chasing my dreams. I’ve learned how to keep getting up. I have found no better option than to stand up again and again no matter how many times life knocks you on your butt.
I want to embrace everything good in life. I’ve known the bad. I lived and survived the bad. That’s another story, the beginning chapters of my life, but out of all that bad came so much beauty. I love to live that now.
(I’ve been blogging since before the word “blog” existed, back in the days of hand-coding.)
Pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
