I have lived the rural Stockbridge/Chilton area all my life, not too far from Lake Winnebago. The majority of my photographs are taken within a moderate walking distance of my home or a few mile drive down local roads.

For years life passed me by, I was missing out on life's journey. I didn't even realize this until I picked up my camera and began what quickly became a way for me to capture the simple things around me through my lens. For me this is about seeing the things we pass by daily, that I didn't notice before; a lonely flower, a bunch of drying grapes, a beautiful sunset, a butterfly, or white fluffy clouds.

Now I see everything with a very different eye - my daily life is about presence and the beauty, and capturing it so I can share it with you.
