I live in the Caribbean, on the island of St. Martin, where I was born and raised. I grew up in the village of Cole Bay and I've lived in numerous countries around the world. I am a born-again Christian and I fellowship at Praise Tabernacle Church in my hometown. I've enjoyed a former career as a surgical assistant and hold degrees in biology and environmental science. Those studies cemented my already deep appreciation of the wonders of nature - an appreciation that influences my view of the world and how I photograph what I see. I am an art photographer, musician, and singer who enjoys Do-It-Yourself home projects, fine-dining, gardening, gourmet cooking & baking, hiking along the coast with my dog, listening to music, reading, journaling, rock- and shell-collecting, snorkeling, and sailing.
