what others are sayinG

In addition to being a photographer, I am also an educator and podcaster in the creative and photo industry. As the host of the Mistakes Make Magic Podcast, I am unafraid to share my processes and experience with others who are passionate and struggling, but ready to grow!

Sometimes we all just need a little positive push and creative guidance to help establish confidence in a world full of comparison and self doubt.
