Normally we go to ShutoCon as artists – selling our usual array of buttons. This year however due to conflicting schedules I missed out on alley registration and decided to just buy a normal badge. It’s been YEARS since we’ve hit a convention as regular…

Since I can see Campus Martius from my building, it’s kind of silly to not attend most of the events going on in the evenings here. One of the bigger crowd draws being the annual Christmas Tree lighting. On my way out, I passed through the main lobby…

Last day - ends at midnight due to the deadline for the tax office.

We're almost there. I'm sending this around one last time to see if we can make the goal. Please share if you're unable to donate right now. I appreciate just taking the time to help in that way.

Now it’s time to ride! We have a Fastpass so make our way over to the other side of the park. On the way out of lunch, I spot this balloon, and boy was I tempted to get one of my own. We didn’t have time to stop to talk with Belle, but I love […]

Tuesday morning arrives – and runs off while we’re sleeping. Hey, I never pretended to be a morning person, and that 6am start wasn’t going to be a trend. Eventually we get going and head to the car. I snap a shot in the elevator. Let me take a quick…
We ride the ferry to the Magic Kingdom. See a Trolley Show, visit Gaston, and get ready for lunch.

My most favoritest reason for being here finally arrives! Magic Kingdom in FULL HALLOWEEN GLORY. Despite a strongly afflicting phobia of certain things with 8 legs (to the point where not only is the technical term for them absolutely too much, but even…

This is the 4th year that Menorah in the D has taken place – another one of those events that are hard to ignore when they’re going on just feet from your workplace. On Tuesday, December 16th, which is the first night of Chanukah, all were welcome to come…

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] With the construction of the Z-Deck parking – Detroit gained some fresh retail space on both sides at street level. A few places have already opened, but not quite to the fanfare and crowd as Punch Bowl Social. Detroit…

It's been a rough year - and my mom has tried, and been denied, all the available assistance options in our state.  If anyone can take a moment to give even a dollar, or just to pass on the link, I appreciate it deeply.

My mom is pictured on the right. My gramma on the left - who just passed away this year after 5 years of disappearing to Alzheimer's. My mom took her in and cared for her full time because the alternative wasn't an option in our minds. Elderly care homes are not places you want your loved ones with Alzheimer's / Dementia when you're below a certain income level...

As an aside: I'll forever be grateful for taking an interest in photography for moments like the image above being permanently captured.

I had heard many mixed reviews on Be Our Guest, and decided that if I got the mysterious invite email directly from Disney then I would reserve a lunch there. I did get the email, and so here we are. After checking in and confirming we had reservations…

First fancy dinner night! After initial sticker shock over the prices (I did not yet know the beauty of a prime steak) in 2011, the Yachtsman Steakhouse fast became and stayed our favorite (and yes, most expensive) meal. Since he was our waiter each time…

    Photographer, 2006 - present
    I'm grateful that my photography work is still something that excites and inspires me and I get to work with the love of my life too. When not out capturing the world around me, I also maintain the website and blog, cook amazing food (and sometimes photograph it too), and assist with the art and storyline for whatever crazy new video game we're making.

Introduction
I am a photographer - capturing people, landscapes, and various events. I shoot for myself - if I'm interested in what I see, I figure odds are other people will be too.

I'd say I've been a photographer my whole life. I was always the person with a camera in hand - starting with my little Vivitar 110 with the bar flash and working my way to a Pentax ME with a couple of lenses and a darkroom full of black and whites and finally to my current Canon DSLR. I love capturing the world around me and being able to share it with people who might not be able to see it otherwise.
