I'm dreaming big over here! WILD WITHIN YOU(TH) has been stirring in my spirit for over 10 years now. It started out as a desire to give back; give kindness and love to children in need. I wandered for years, getting to know myself and consistently questioning what I should be doing and where I should be doing it. Through many serendipitous encounters, I have ended up in Zion National Park; taking portraits, teaching landscape photography and dreaming of using my skills to give kids a creative outlet in nature. Over the years, life has prepared me for THIS exact moment. Many of my 'ah-ha' moments surfaced through struggles; while adventuring in the outdoors with a camera in my hand. It's beautiful what comes of out heart ache, mistakes and seeking purpose.
WILD WITHIN YOU(TH) is the pulse behind WILD WITHIN US. Being a kid is hard, confusing and sometimes hurtful. The emotions are raw and real and often overwhelming. I would like to say my mission is simple, but I believe it is more than that. I believe is imperative; helping youth heal through teaching them photography as a creative outlet while being surrounded by nature.
Currently, I am putting together all the details for WILD WITHIN YOU(TH). Including ways to give, get involved and support what I believe will be a great program for children. For now, you can check out my travel images and purchase with a purpose as %100 of all purchases will go towards cameras for the kids we will work with in the future.
