My style of photography is a mix of fine art and journalism, capturing beautiful moments as it unfolds.  The laughter, emotions, and happy tears in artistic ways

Aloha!  My true passion for photography journeys back to 1989, when I left the Island of Oahu where I grew up, before settling in a small city in Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.   For over 25 years, I worked for a small community newspaper, the Cowichan News Leader, as a photojournalist, documenting everything from hard news to entertainment to sports.  Throughout those 25 years, I've received numerous awards for my achievements in photojounalism.  My work has been published in various magazines as well as national newspapers.

In 1998, I joined the Professional Photographers of Canada and by 2009, I earned the Master of Photographic Arts distinction, with accreditions in photojournalism, portraiture, wedding, and sports.
