I KNOW this is what I am suppose to be doing...and I really am good at it :)
...that's when you KNOW!
The Re-Imagined Self
Organic coffee farming
in Costa Rica
education and sustainability
In 2014 and my 5th visit to Costa Rica, I decided to film a mini-doc to tell the story of the young, organic coffee farmers and their efforts to stay organic, not only for their own health, but for the health of the environment and the world!
SAY IT OUT LOUD!
Steve Neumann in Costa Rica
Steve shares one of his personal moments from his experience on the See Earth expedition 2013.
Biotechnology - Advanced
Working with students to promote their programs was loads of fun!
allow me to capture the essence of your experience!
Expedition Video and Photography
Leave your cameras at home, I'm on the job :)
Being present in a space that allows for kick-ass fear conquering, risk taking, spirit freeing ADVENTURE is my absolute passion! Capturing the experience for all participants is my honour.
Promotional Video - R+R Handmade
Raina McDonald and Ruben Irons are R+R Handmade. They create magnificently together. I had the opportunity to stay with Raina and Ruben last summer as we filmed and collaborated on this video. This is the 2 minute version for etsy. It is my honour to showcase them!
SAY IT OUT LOUD!
Honouring our truth with vulnerability and authenticity in front of the camera is massive.
When we SAY IT OUT LOUD, the RELEASE not only benefits YOUR mind, body and soul,
but the vibration ripples outward, and when that happens, everyone benefits!

some of my favs
I am a multimedia developer specializing in video and photography.
My passions include education, permaculture, women's circles, and outdoor adventure!
I have had an amazing career at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Canada but
in March 2017 it was time to switch it up alot and go FREELANCE.
I invite you to go through my site and if anything calls to you please feel free to contact me.
I am beginning to understand that the women I meet are truly and expression of mySELF!
I have much to learn about mySELF through my relationships.
These Renaissance Women are part of myEssence and I truly TRUST
they are with me for a spectacular reason
Ange was first on the page but the last one I wrote about. Ange is a version of me that is so adventurous, has so much passion, she lives on the edge. I love that part of me!
I am constantly triggered by Ange and
I think I trigger her as well.
I loved hearing her soft, vulnerable voice during one of our conversations, saying
.'Who the FUCK' is Nancy Bell???
That triggered a feeling of belonging in me.
I am here for a reason. I matter to these women and OH BOY, they Invite and Allow me to be all that I AM!
A knowing was evident when I brought Naomi into mySpace.
Little did I know the fucking power, the force that I was tapping into when I actually shared physical Space with her.
Sometimes I feel like her daughter, sometimes her mother,
sometimes her grandmother haha,
but mostly her sista!!!
We have done powerful things throughout our many lifetimes together!
I have no doubt we will continue the journey
Tanya is a witch, plain and simple. She sprinkled pixie dust on me and now
I can fly!
Tanya represents all the "best friends" I have had throughout my lifetimes. She lights a fire under me, inside of me, outside of me, above me, fucking even below me,
and I am eternally grateful!
She acts immediately, something I never learned how to do, because of fear.
I am learning NOW!
I love Nancy! Nancy is the creative in me. Nancy is so alive, passionate and so expressive. She represents all that I can be. My urgency to 'experience' is fading.
Nancy allowed me to realize
that I don't have to 'be there' to experience the joy, the love of a situation.
When you are with a collective of women that are connected, you
feel through each other.
The experience is the same whether you are in attendance or not!

Mother Earth is Raina.
Raina represents the best of me as a mother. The only thing I ever wanted to be when I grew up was a Mother.
It is my favourite thing!!!
When Raina is near...
I know I am being heard. I know she feels what I feel, I know she is
holding space for me.
Raina GOES FOR IT!
All of it!
She is courageous and determined and I love that about her!
Stephanie is always present at the exact time I need to hear what comes out of her mouth!!
I bet Stephanie and her
pixie sister Tanya
go flying around Never Land together
in search of Lost Boys
to play with and Pirates to battle :)
Stephanie represents myInnocense, the young girl in me that played in the woods and swam in the river.
I know Stephanie will continue to play
when I forget!
coming home was the feeling I had on this day, on the North Shore, on my Birthday, during the magnificent Full Moon
A day that allowed me to remember where it all began
A day that allowed me to remember my tribe
A day that allowed me to remember a lifetime
A day that connected my past and present
North Shore, Oahu
Coming home to a knowing of tribe.
As my eye focused through the lense, through the grass, on the primal gaze of these two beings, I was fully aware of the presence of a WILD past, lived lifetimes ago.
I see both wisdom and innocense in each of your gazes.
Both lioness and cub
Both wisdom and innocense
Both curiosity and knowing
Naomi and Tanya
North Shore, Oahu
Remembering the warrior of past
She stepped to the edge and slowly exposed her strength!
Proud and Confident was she!
DON'T FUCK WITH ME came shouting out of her without a noise or flicker. Solid and ready to defend!
I see a warrior of past...
North Shore, Oahu
a protective instinct is rooted from lives lived
The watcher, the looker, the one who signals when the wave is near.
Wisdom evolves as she watches
She knows the risks and lives her life anyway..without fear!
She is strategic, but her plan is simple...PROTECT!
what these creations are made from and where I traveled to get the shells and talismans
the fan and the flame
greece . hawaii . mexico . canada
This fiery creation came together with the HAMSA HAND with EVIL EYE symbol for the ultimate protection.
I found this charm while shopping at the world famous PLAKA MARKET in ATHENS GREECE!
PUKA SHELL was used in Hawaiian culture as a talisman for good luck. Walking the beach, eyeing these beauties was one of the best parts of my day during my time at MAKAHA BEACH in WAIANAE HAWAII
RED LIGHTNING AGATE is known as the spiritual flame of absolute perfection which carries a great mystery locked inside its deep brown crystal. This old stock agate comes from MEXICO.
WHITE HOWLITE is a calming stone, aids insomnia and stress and calms anger....and it was first discovered in CANADA!
ROSE QUARTZ stones open up the heart chakra to unconditional love and positive energy, making it one of the most important gemstones for healing.
The PURPLE TASSEL symbolizes knowledge, intuition, insight, higher wisdom, power, nobility, luxury and ambition. PURPLE activates the 6th Chakra ANJA (third eye).
