A few years back, after many life and career changes and upsets, I rather indulgently took 2 years off. It was during the course of my travels and soul searching that I re-discovered a hobby I had great passion for since childhood - photography.
I have since re-located to South Florida, am back working in the world of entertainment public relations, and getting the chance to flex my photography skills with on-set production stills, food photography and shooting my beautiful Niece and Nephew.
This blog is my musings of my experiences and journey, both photographic and personal as I discover what it is that I am passionate about and I cast off into the uncertain seas of life re-invented....yet again. What will happen is anyone's guess.
