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 youth 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.
We live for those wild feelings of knowing and being known. We believe in experiences made of moments that can heal and change lives.
