“You can get anything you want in life if you help others get what they want.”
That’s my personal mantra — and the signature on my email. I truly believe that lifting others is the fast-track to development and growth — both personally and financially.
Professionally, I’ve been in marketing for 10 years. As an entrepreneur and marketer, I’ve helped countless clients reach their business goals through marketing strategies that rely on SEO, content, and social media development.
My day job is more than a day job … It’s my passion to help others make their goals a reality.
But marketing is only part of who I am.
To truly be successful in any professional field, you must have passion for other things in life. Otherwise, how will you stay inspired?
My two greatest passions in life are writing and photography.
I love words and communication. That definitely shows up in my professional work, but it goes way beyond it. I love using words to inspire others, and as a means to get inspired myself.
I’m an avid reader — as you may have noticed there’s a whole sub-heading on this site dedicated to some of my favorite books. Reading is like a window into other worlds — and it always helps expand my worldview and allow me to think differently.
I also love writing, as you can see from the content of this blog and in my marketing work. Writing is the gateway to communicating stories and ideas. So much connection — both personally and professionally — happens through writing.
But writing can also be a way of getting in touch with yourself. It can be a form of meditation and self-care that can keep you centered — while simultaneously keeping you curious about the world.
My constant curiosity about the world eventually led me to photography.
I knew that I needed another hobby in my life that would get me out in the world, out of my head, and away from work.
When I discovered photography, I knew I’d found the missing link.
I’ve always been fascinated with the stars — photographing them perfectly had always been a dream of mine. When I was feeling overwhelmed at work, I decided to give it a go.
With the help of some friends and by studying the work of other inspiring photographers I was able to figure out how to capture the universe.
I started with a basic phogotraphy setup, but as my passion grew, so did my prowess and skill set. I’ve progressed past just the stars — now, I make time to photograph all elements of nature.
These days, I specialize in landscape photography. I always strive to capture surreal landscapes … and I love collaborating and sharing my work with others.
Marketing … Writing … Photography. That’s pretty much my life, and it’s a good one.
My goal is to inspire and encourage others to get out into nature with a book in hand and pad of paper and pencil — it’s a beautiful and enlightening experience. Oh yeah … also, bring a camera!
