Music can take you on a journey, make you laugh, cry and touch the deepest part of your soul. So can a photograph. I come to photography as a musician, attracted to visual narratives that define an unsuspected beauty in a specific place in time. I am a champion of the overlooked, and see my photography as a way to research, create change and inject some beauty into the world.

Carey Moore, 84, Taos New Mexico
For the holidays, I road tripped from Santa Monica to Taos, NM with my hubby and 2 dogs. What a delight to see the wide open road again and all the natural pieces in nature's museum. I felt a re-connection to my creativity and to taking pictures with my camera just for fun and the beauty of it. I always look for landscapes and skyscrapes for Good Morning UniVerse and I was blessed with an abundance of those! Then... I wasn't planning on it but I found "Spirits of Beauty," an amazing salon in Taos, where I met the most amazing spunky 84 year old, Carey. She has been an actress and a very successful painter. Along with her oxygen tank, she carries her camera in her pocketbook. As I took her photograph, she took mine and made us all laugh. Her spirit lit up that room and our hearts and Carey is proof of beauty and wisdom.
