A little bit about me...



In 1994 I saw the IMAX movie, Africa - The Serengeti. I so wished to visit and witness The Great Migration; something I thought I would never do. Who would have thought that my dream of going on safari would come true?


As a Colorado native, I grew up in Montrose on the Western Slope and moved to Denver in 1981. I spent my 38-year career as a Human Resources Professional working for manufacturing companies. 


I moved to Doha Qatar, on the Persian Gulf, with my husband, Bob, in 2011. While in Doha, I was able to pursue my love of photography and sharpen my skills. We lived there for four years, returning to Colorado in 2015. Although I enjoy traveling, I am happy to be home and close to family and friends.


Upon reflection, I have always had a camera in my hands and a longing for adventure in my heart. I have sought out a variety of experiences around the world.  I am drawn to explore wherever I am; the environment, the people, wildlife, and the surrounding activities. Taking a photo is one thing but to create the image that reflects the moment and preserve it forever is pure joy for me; from beginning to end.


In 1999, I went on my first safari. I fell in love with The Serengeti, the Annual Wildebeest Migration, the abundance of animals, the variety of birds, and the different landscapes. It was all simply remarkable! I visited Tanzania several times over the years that followed. I was hooked!


Because I enjoy sharing this amazing experience with like-minded travelers, I started leading safaris in 2012. Sharing Tanzania is ultimately the most gratifying aspect for me.
