I was born on a Thursday, and true to the old verse "Thursday's child has far to go", have always had more than a bit of wanderlust. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to over 45 countries, to 6 of the 7 continents, and I'm stlll making lists of where I want to explore next. Travelling always awakens the wonderment and awe of my "inner child" and my camera allows me to capture those feelings.

As for my passion for photography, I would rather have a root canal without anesthetic than have my photo taken! It is this fear and loathing of being in front of the camera lens that has perhaps helped propel me to behind the lens.

I have enjoyed careers in radio copywriting, advertising and marketing/event planning - all creative ventures - but my photography allows me to capture what I can't in words or with a paintbrush. My photos make me feel like an artist!
