An Inspired Life or A Life Inspired

Many people will come along who inspire and influence you throughout your lifetime. But few will ever do more for you than your parents. My mother’s always been an inspiration to me.

From an early age, she went out of her way to involve me in creative activities that stimulated my mind and imagination. When I was a teenager, she got me my first guitar that set me on a path of learning to create music. She also went back to college to get her Masters in Education one class at a time while teaching and raising three kids.

That was an important lesson for me about how hard work and determination help you accomplish anything you put your mind to. This foundation motivates and drives me to constantly improve and move forward, to stay focused and resolute no matter what obstacles come my way.

With this foundation, I’ve been able to achieve the goals I set in life. I meet challenges head-on and learn from them, growing as a photographer and a person. These are the rewards of living by the example my mother has set for me through all these years.
