I'm an amateur photographer and Minnesota native who, after 36 years packed up and followed a dream to live in the Pacific Northwest. If people have souls then I believe that I found mine here, in this wonderful place called Oregon. In Portland, I fit in. At the beach, I can breathe. In the forest, I can grieve for those I've lost and give thanks for those I have and love. I shoot pictures to try and convey these feelings and share with everyone the magic of the Pacific Northwest. I hope you like them!
