Keep Truckin’ – Why I LOVE this company

Ok – so I love stories about businesses and passions that spring out of {extremely} hard life events. Keep Truckin’ is probably one of my favorite of those stories. I actually shot Nori and Trevor’s wedding a few years ago, and it, of course, featured their awesome canine companion, Edison (and he’s regular model on […]

Heading to Dunwoody on March 27th!

It’s amazing that I can fit “social media, fishing, dogs, grief, the outdoors, and the power of virtual communities” into the description of about 80% of my keynote presentation descriptions… who knew all of these things would end up being related.  I will be heading to  Dunwoody College of Technology on March 27th for their […]

The Ultimate Gift

So, two months ago Al and I lost our two oldest baby dogs in less than 2 weeks. I took photos of Max’s last few days – from the mess on his face from us trying to feed him, to the saline bag while we tried to hydrate him, to the last moments in the […]

Last week I submitted my proposal for a TEDx in October of this year – it’s called The Power of Virtual Communities During Personal Tragedy. It’s about empowering both the person who has experienced pain, and their family/friends who want to make a difference, but don’t know how. It’s something I feel very passionate about. […]
