Being a four-time lymphoma survivor is the window through which I see the world. (Ask me anything about cancer, I'm here for you.) Seeing the hard, rough edges that life has to offer forces me to find the softer, prettier sides. The change of seasons, the pale winter sun, the promise of spring, the carefree days of summer and the crisp fall air, inspire me. I shoot with natural light and my favorite lens is a 50 mm. The incredible blue tones where the mountains meet the sky at eventide move me. The mountains and the coast are inspiring places to spend time. They never fail to restore my soul and energy.
