"In whatever one does, there must be a relationship between the eye and the heart," he once said in a rare interview. "With the one eye that is closed, one looks within, with the other eye that is open, one looks without."
— Henri Cartier-Bresson

“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”                                                                            — Dorothea Lange

“Do not ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”                                             — Harold Thurman 

"What we all have is a dash. From the time we're born until that fateful day each of us will take our last breath, our dash is always by our side, serving as our ultimate running buddy--charting everything we've ever done, everything we've ever said. Its sole purpose is to be our life's keeper of record, to compile the good, the bad, the triumphs and the disappointments in our life, and when we are gone, present its findings to the world as the total picture of who we were.

From its place on our tombstone, right there between our birth date and death date, this dash takes up so little space, that it is hardly ever noticed. But it represents so much. While the two dates simply tell when you lived, it's the dash that tells how you lived."
— Kevin Chappell

 I am a California Native and grew up in some of Northern California’s most beautiful and agriculturally bountiful regions.
 My love of travel, food and wine was developed during my time as an international flight attendant and in the restaurant industry in the San Francisco Bay Area.
My food and wine photography has been seen in numerous Bay Area publications, including the San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland Tribune, Diablo Magazine, Tri-Valley Magazine, and the Sentinel Newspaper, among others.  
I was recently honored by Olympus of America which has one of my photos on their home page.
I received “best of Class” in the 2008 Juried photography competition, Alameda County Fair
In addition to food and wine,  I photograph landscapes and travel destinations.
I live in the SF Bay Area.
