I'm a Cancer through and through. I love all things cozy, especially my home nestled in the woods of Becket. I was born and raised in The Berkshires and feel so lucky that I still get to call it my home. Over the years I've explored many different walks of life. I was a pre-school teacher, a social worker, a theater major and a program manager at a non-profit. They've all shaped who I am but I've never been as happy and grounded as I am now as a photographer.
Some other random facts about me are I've been bungee jumping in Switzerland, I've walked the red carpet at the Cannes Festival, I've stayed in the very remote rain forests of Costa Rica in which we had to trek 3 hours by horse back, I've snowboarded the powder bowls in Utah, I've traveled cross country in 3 days and then again in 4 weeks, took 4 wheelers to swim in some of Mexico's cenotes and I've explored 3 of Indonesia's Islands. Okay so I'm showing off a bit! Mostly I look for the joy in the small things because, I believe, that's where big impact lives.
I LOVE to travel. But who doesn't?!? Sometimes a good trip is right in our own neck of the woods. Travel doesn't always require a plane trip somewhere "exotic"!
My happy place
Outside. The woods, the mountains, hiking, snowboarding, camping. Just give me all the fresh air and mother nature.
I've been married for 14 years and with my husband for almost 20 years!! We are nestled in the woods of Becket with our cat and dog.
My earliest memory of photography is going to my grandparents in Queens and pulling out all the albums from the side table. I could look at those same photos a million times over. My first camera was a 35mm canon film. In 2009 I decided to make my obsession my career and went back to school at New England School of Photography.
FIND me on the east coast
I'm a Berkshire native and have deep connections with the small town Berkshire life. I get to live where a lot of people come to vacation. I feel very lucky and grateful every day.
I have loads of favorite spots but what I love most is that I'm always discovering more new spaces! Just when I think I knew every nook and cranny The Berkshires offer up yet another gem to explore.
