Hello! I’m not sure how you found me, but I’m glad that you did.
To sum up, I design websites that look great on phones, tablets, and computers, and that are very easy to maintain. I prefer WordPress as a CMS (content management system). I like to use color and imagery to help business owners and artists convey their message to visitors, existing and potential. I am also well-versed in e-commerce websites through the use of Paypal and WooCommerce.
I help people use social media and content to their advantage. I can instruct nearly anyone on best practices for web maintenance and social media, hashtags, and SEO.
I am also a photographer who specializes in portraits and headshots, food/cocktail photography, interiors and exteriors for real estate, still life photography, and in photo retouching using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.
On the personal side, I am a California native, born in the early 80’s, and a lover of 90’s music. I am most creative when the sun goes down and into the early morning hours. I love sunset naps in my backyard hammock, snuggling my three rat terrier pups, and sipping a glass of wine in the evening. I know all of the words to “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” by Tupac and Snoop Dogg. The first car I ever bought for myself was a black 1998 Ford Mustang GT with black leather interior, and I miss it like the dickens. I’d consider myself adventurous, but not necessarily brave. I am a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Francisco Giants. I enjoy being on the beach, but I’ve only been in the ocean twice (once on a snorkeling dive in Catalina). I also love sushi and cheesecake.
My core values are honesty, compassion, and forgiveness. I think it’s more important to listen than it is to speak. When it comes to ideas: give me an inch, I will give you a mile. I prefer to arrive early, and I believe that the entire world is a glorious opportunity to learn.
If you’re down, I would LOVE to work with you! Let’s talk about your ideas.

Cousin Day #2

This one didn’t go as planned. But sometimes that’s okay, I’m learning.

Two days before our second cousin day, I was told that two of my friends passed away in a tragic car accident. They were driving home from a gig that I had booked and were hit by another driver who had entered the freeway headed in the wrong direction. Sad; unfair; stupid; untimely. Aiden and Ainsley Hubbard were young, talented musicians with literally hundreds of friends.

I made it to the restaurant where we’d planned to meet for Cousin Day #2; I ordered a mimosa and food, and we ended up just sitting at the table, talking rather than shooting. Which, as cousin Stacy said, was totally fine, because it all worked out: we obviously needed to talk more than we needed to shoot. I really appreciated that.

The three of us made lists and some plans to continue Cousin Day into 2017 in order to explore more of what Los Angeles has to offer. Tomorrow we will meet for Cousin Day #3, and we have a trip planned for the end of May to make the first ever Cousin Weekend happen in Seattle! I honestly can’t wait. (Especially since Stacy is from Seattle, and knows all of the best spots.)

Stay tuned! There are a lot more photographs to come….

Edit: Cousin Day #3 was rained out and postponed. Living in LA, I never thought I’d have to say that.
