Out on the thick icy bay at first light, south westerly was a glowing crimson sphere descending on the horizon.

With fingers frozen, I lay upon the wind polished ice to snap a couple last shots before daylight would wash away the magic hour.

Never could I foresee then that this cosmic occurrence was to be the last image I'd capture for the National Geographic Society (NGS).

For more than 30 years working as a media professional, I traversed the world as a photographer, producer, journalist and award-winning documentary filmmaker. A vocation that had begun taking a toll on my emotional well-being from covering hostile circumstances and witnessing flagrant injustice.

My rationale incorporates formative pedagogy, coupled with thirty plus years of real world multidisciplinary and media arts experience. My cosmopolitan perspective is sourced from four decades of extensive world travels, international journalistic investigations and a wealth of cultural exchanges and experiences. Today, as a qualified Art Educator that also teaches Entrepreneurship, History, as well as French and English Language Arts, I’ve found that teaching Visual and Media Arts are ideal programs of study to promote self-awareness and self-esteem. It is then that Art becomes an exploratory processes that stimulates independent thinking and idea making beyond the proverbial box.

I am a STORY that I create and express. I also integrate and reshape other narratives in the process. My edition does include FINE ARTS, DIRECTING, WALT DISNEY STUDIOS, DALAÏ-LAMA, LAS VEGAS, WAR, HISTORICAL EVENTS, UNITED NATIONS, and TEACHING FIRST NATION YOUTH. Although there are multiple accomplishments that I am proud of, they don't define my character. If anything, CURIOSITY, CREATIVITY, RESILIENCE and COMPASSION do.
