Passion

Each of us has a story to tell. The rich complexities that every individual experiences during their lifetime can help others to learn valuable lessons.

I love to hear these stories. Then I visually record the story tellers in order to compile a print ready feature piece as well as a high quality audio visual presentation ready for the Web or video. I do this in hope of inspiring others. This is my passion.

Philosophy

“Within each of us is a story about life and I have a burning desire to explore what it is that keeps us going in the face of adversity- or not.

For me it is attitude. Attitude, I believe, is the only thing that we can truly control.” John McEvoy
