About Me: October 21, 2009: I began a yearlong journey. I looked at my life and saw that it is overflowing with amazing women who have touched, moved and inspired me. I deeply wanted to acknowledge these women for what they have given me and I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings with a public audience through words and images. So I challenged myself to create 365 photographs which would be revealed on my website, a different one each day. This was the birth of an untitled project about strong and beautiful women - and like any new baby it is thriving and evolving.
January 28, 2010: The 100th day of "Women: Untitled." For 100 days I have shared stories about the women who have made a difference in my life. Their compassion has inspired me to contribute to community, to love unconditionally, and to pay their generosity forward. I will continue to photograph the women in my life and write about what they mean to me throughout the year. But I also want to include those women who inspire others in our community and attempt to capture that quality in an image. So as the year unfolds I will photograph a diverse range of women and infuse their unique voices into this project. Each day I will feature a new portrait, however on certain days I will also include a story about her from a friend, a personal answer to a question, poetry, or a six-word memoir written by the woman herself. Whatever it may be, it will inspire me as it creates a space for recognizing the natural brilliance of women.
