Improving the World

Love the World

The thing I love most about my photography is people's reactions to it. The smiles and joy people experience when they see how a loving eye can portray them are artifacts of how I have used my gifts to bless people. 

Whenever possible, I also like to get out from behind the camera and bless the world in other ways. Giving of ourselves is one of the keys to building peace and community. This page is a collection of causes close to my heart. I welcome any support you can offer, whether financial, spiritual, or emotional.

Brazil - September 2012


I'm joining an expedition up the Amazon river with a group that serves the small villages with medical and dental services. I'm not a doctor and haven't played one on TV, but I'll be contributing by helping out the villagers with things like house painting, minor construction, and otherwise letting them know that they are worthy of love and care.
