Photography, storytelling & creative expression are at the heart of my work. My hope is to inspire participants to look deeply enough to notice the soul of a moment. Tapping into ecology, anthropology, poetry, history, geography and movement, we create connection, foster a sense of community and develop tools that help us see the world, and ourselves, with more clarity, more kindness and more fun!! Let's play!!!

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

In my workshops I tap into photography, storytelling and movement to create connection and open our eyes to the world both within and around us. Infusing learnings from science, history, geography, and anthropology; alongside poetry and creative expression. It is important to me to work with staff to create content that expands and taps into the learning curriculum. Content is both technical and offers space to breathe and foster a sense of community. The world around us is our studio -- as we live in it, as we are influenced by it, and as we shape it. Our subject is the human spirit. The way each one of us sees the world matters. Our unique perspective is valid and important -- this is the tool we use to share our story.
With heart wide open, it is an honour to witness the sacredness of each being and each moment exactly as it is — sparkling with magic and beauty.
