Desire to Inspire - Creating Positive Change

Hello, Some of you may know me, if not, allow me to shed some light on how I got into the world of my photography, which was somewhat unorthodox. Roughly 8 years ago I was given an opportunity to re-create my life, and it’s been absolutely amazing. Since then I made a decision to help others achieve their dreams as much as I can,  working with today’s youth or any others who may be less likely to believe that CHANGE is POSSIBLE! 

Unfortunately, while I was traveling for work in Arizona my rental car was vandalized and a thief stole all of my camera gear.  I had worked hard to acquire this Leica gear over the past 8 years.  As most photographers would say, I truly loved my gear.  These are the tools of my craft, so when they were stolen, I was devastated. 
For that reason I would sincerely appreciate any Contributions you are able to make, 

That means you will also be responsible for getting my work back out to the world. Each Participant, depending on the size of the contribution, will be awarded a special signed print or poster processed by the world-renowned Digital Silver Imaging Inc, printing specialists rated TOP in their field .
