A little bit about my life’s journey…so far.
I photograph and write about nature, place, inspiration, and being human.
I’ve been made by love, and transformed by loss.
I’ve been shaped by the landscapes where I’ve lived: Michigan, Iowa, Virginia, and Alberta.
Travel has stirred my soul. I’ve climbed a pyramid in Egypt, watched an eclipse moon rise over Crete, and walked two Camino pilgrimage trails in Spain.
Now I live on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, filling my senses with west coast beauty. I don’t know where I’ll journey next. I hope to see my ancestral Finland one day.
I’m a lifelong, curious, experiential learner. I went to university, but don’t have a degree. In my nonprofit life, I earned the niche professional designations CAE and C.Mgr. But I learn best by seeking, asking, doing, reflecting, and always following my heart.
