I am a wife (married to Daniel:), mom, photographer, photo-editor, business-manager, coach, distance runner, and animal lover! I began shooting professionally with Daniel in 2005. I graduated from the Friends World Program of Long Island University in 2000 after studying in NY, East Africa, Central America, and the Middle East. I worked as an environmental education director in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, before moving to Hatteras Island. Since living on the Outer Banks, I've been a part-time freelance writer, educator, designer, musician, coach, and park ranger. I have also served on the Board of Directors of the Dare County Arts Council and was Vice-President and President of the Outer Banks Wedding Association.
