Published Photos

I use my camera to enhance the stories I tell. Not only do I love to tell
a story through words I am over the moon when I get to add photos into
the mix. Since the summer of 2021 I have had my photos published with my stories.

It’s obvious a plant is thriving when it outgrows its pot — the same could be said for businesses when they move to a bigger location.

Plant shop Adopted Roots opened last October on South Warren Street, aiming to capitalize on new renters moving downtown, looking to decorate their apartments.

An 1850 farmhouse complete with a sauna. A hobbit house in a backyard. A family home-turned- glamping paradise. Tucked in among Central New York’s more strictly functional listings on the popular vacation rental site Airbnb are these one-of-a-kind places owned by passionate, artistic residents.

Fun Photos

I took up photography as a hobby in the fall of 2020. Now, my camera is always
strapped to my side and ready for whatever adventure is next.
