About Me

I am an atypical soccer mom, compliance guru and photographer who's trying hard to have it all. When not taking pictures of my cats, you can find me napping in the quiet car of the commuter train or yelling from the sidelines of a U13 lacrosse game. 


I photograph a wide range of subjects including nature, animals, people, macabre, self portraits, urban and more.
