|"My earliest memories involve cameras. My grandfather developed the first roll of microfilm and worked for Recordak (Kodak) when it was founded in New York. I believe every room of their house had a camera in it. As kids, my sisters and I were encouraged to be creative, and that has always been a large influence in my life. I started down my 'photographers' path in my teens but was sidetracked by college. I have found my focus again and my journey is through the lens of a camera once again. I am excited about the rest of my life, my adventures and am lucky enough to have found peace within myself and encouragement from family and friends. My grandfather always said that everything is temporary. While that may be true for life's moments he never mentioned that an image of that moment can last forever."
