We each have our own pure pleasure ... something that keeps us in the moment and allows us to experience unmitigated joy. For me it is creating portraits, whether they are of a child or an agave or a wave. It is my hope to capture and share this pleasure with my clients and my viewers.
Storyteller is a preschool for homeless children in Santa Barbara and has a variety of programs that help the parents get back on their feet and provide the kids with much needed medical, dental, nutritional, and counseling services … as well as being a first rate preschool program that any of us would be happy to have our children attend. I have been affiliated with Storyteller for the past seven years as a development consultant, a board member and now an advisory board member and have been consistently impressed with the services it provides and the fiscal responsibility with which it operates.
