Story
Tagline
I take pictures. Then I mess with them.
Introduction
RELOCATING TO PHOENIX, AZ IN MAY 2012!

I moved to Ohio in 2000 from Portland, Oregon to be closer to my mother who's health was failing. Soon after I moved here she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I've had a lifelong love for photography, but when Mom was diagnosed I put my camera in the closet and spent the next 8 years taking care of her through her extraordinary battle to live. Although the doctors had given her a little more than a year, she fought hard and lived for much longer than anyone expected.  Her doctors said she was a miracle.  Sadly, Mom finally lost her battle in January 2011.  I honored her wish that her body be donated for medical research.  Her hope was that whatever it was that helped her live so much longer than anyone expected could also help others fighting cancer.

One thing I did for myself toward the end of Mom's life was get my camera out of the closet and start shooting again.  The constant caregiving had taken a heavy toll on me and taking pictures gave me some brief release from the pressure of taking care of my mother.  Mom was so happy and proud to be able to see new work from me before she passed, and I loved sharing my latest captures with her.

With the loss of Mom, and the end of my capacity as a caretaker, my life seemed empty and pointless all of a sudden.  After a few months of 'aimless wandering' my love of animals led me to a new purpose that has lent some meaning to life again.  I donate my time to taking better photos of rescue & shelter animals in hopes that it will help give them a better chance to find a loving home.

If I could give it zero stars, I would. Store is dirty & disorganized. Cashiers act like it will hurt them to help you, or offer a smile. Baskets of returned merchandise are strewn all over the front of the store. Shelves are messy, and merchandise is scattered so that you can't tell what thing goes with which price. I'm disabled & usually have to sit on a bench for 30-45 minutes waiting for a motorized cart because there aren't enough of them (or non-disabled people are using them for joy rides). It's unfortunate that there's not another Walmart closer to me, because this one is horrible.
