It took an Bachelor of Science in Economics, a Masters of Business Administration, and six years under corporate fluorescent lights for me to finally listen to and act on a feeling that seemed to follow me everywhere. I felt like something was missing in my life, like I wasn’t making a difference and I didn’t feel fulfilled by living the status quo. After some traveling, monotonouse corporate work, an application to the Peace Corps, and a medical scare, I got back in touch with the things that made me happy and figured out what I really wanted to do with my life; take photos and inspire/help others. I left the 9-5 and I found the balance I needed to fuel a fulfilling lifestyle by feeding my creative side with my commercial/editorial/documentary photography business and by getting involved in community service (the latter due much to the influence of my hubby).
My favorite quote is from the poem Invictus – “I am the Master of my fate. I am the Captain of my soul”. I’ve never been interested in following the leader or being conventional. It’s hard to think outside the box and change the world when you are.
