Along with a lifetime of experience taking photographs, I also have a formal education in the applied arts and the fine art of photography. I graduated from the applied photography program at the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, and got my degree in Art and Art History from the University of Toronto, with a specialization in photography and design. From these two programs I learned not only the technical skills required for photography, but also developed a design sensibility that gives my photographs a unique and creative feel and style.
3 things I love:
2. Long weekends
3. The quiet moments in life that make us realize how lucky we truly are
3 things about me:
1. I have cried at every wedding I have ever attended, because I think watching two people make a lifelong commitment to one another in front of loved ones is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
2. Family is incredibly important to me, and every day I am thankful for my own family. Although we may not see each other each day, I love them all to pieces.
3. I took my first photograph before I was even two years old, so it was no surprise when photography became part of my life on a professional level. One thing that I never expected, however, was that I would attend innumerable classes and spend years honing my skills to become a certified five-pin and ten-pin bowling coach. But here I am, a Special Olympics bowling coach since 1992, and running a weekly Special Olympics ten-pin bowling program with my dad and sisters every fall and winter. I absolutely love it; we all have a blast, and each week I count my lucky stars for life’s unforeseeable delights.
