I’m a lifestyle, travel, and events photographer who just happens to be legally blind. I use my camera to capture and share things I don’t see.

I’m also a veteran PR gal and accessibility advocate. I love the West Coast, and I’m proud to call Vancouver home.

I love everything Apple, writing, photo-walking, travel, food and wine, hot sake, politics, my cats, CBC Radio, trivia and hugs.
