Photography helps me with my anxiety and mental illnesses as well. It allows me to express how I am feeling. It is hard for me to talk about the wars in my head so being able to show how I feel rather than say it has helped my loved ones to understand my bad and good days more so.
While living here, I’ve been learning how to live with the heavy weight of mental illness. Out of all the mountains I have hiked and climbed, this has been the biggest one yet. My family issues continued for a while then in October 2021, we found out my Dad had a rare form of brain cancer called Glioblastoma. It is a very fast growing aggressive cancer that has no cure or real treatment. My Dad passed away June 29th 2022. Photography has once again been a release of emotions for me, and you will see that in my work, you will be able to see my good days and bad days in it. So please join me on my life adventures and the little ones in between, together we will climb mountains!
