“Within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty.”

[Ralph Waldo Emerson]

I am a sensitive introvert who is inspired by the romantic, the timeless, and a healthy dose of nostalgic black and white photography. I live on offensively strong coffee and my mound of books. I am a professional photographer and a writer with a poet’s heart. I am in love with the epic beauty of nature and vastness of God’s love, and it is where I draw my creative inspirations.

Most days I feel misunderstood, an outlier in a crowd of millions. But that’s okay. It’s good I’ve lived my life that way because now I know nothing is better than helping someone feel seen and understood, and the purpose of my life is to do both. Whether you believe it or not, I believe that there is a loving God out there, and he’s created both of us with purpose. Here, I will journey alone and with you, my faithful reader, to find meaning, understanding, and beauty in this broad universe. My hope is to become a better person in the process and lend a hand to ease your journey in doing the same.

Currently, I am working on a family-saga novel I hope to publish one day, as well as my Master of Education in English. I have an English degree cum laude from the University of South Florida and teach AP Language and Composition and Creative Writing. My wild dream is to become a full-time artist and college professor of English. But most importantly, I want those endeavors to truly mean something more than myself. Who knows what tomorrow brings? I don’t. But what I do know, for sure, is that if you throw a pebble into a lake, it leaves a ripple effect.

“BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.”

[GANDHI]

“LET LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS NEVER LEAVE YOU; bind them around your neck, WRITE THEM ON THE TABLET OF YOUR HEART.”

[Proverbs 3:3-4]

“Do NOT be CONFORMED to the pattern of this world, but be TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING of your mind.”

[Romans 12:2]
