I was born and raised in Utah, which allowed me to develop a love for nature, animals, camping, rock-climbing, hiking, fishing and clean, mountain air. At the age of 15, my family moved to Charleston, SC, which allowed me to develop a love for all things Southern and Hospitable. I've made Florida my home, for the past 20 years. There is nothing like Florida's Gulf Coast beaches, and I've found a certain peace, within its changing tides. I am a published, paid poet, writer, mixed-media artist and photographer. I believe beauty exists in all people, places and most things. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of what I find inspiring. Thank you for visiting my site.
