I am currently employed as an Adjunct Instructor at my local four-year, liberal arts university. I teach in the Department of Communication. The courses I teach currently involve design and marketing. Teaching on the university level in my field was not something I had envisioned doing ten years ago. Since getting the proverbial foot in the door in January 2015, the joy of sharing my knowledge with students that will go out into the world with their skills has brought fulfillment.
In addition to my day job, I also freelance as a photographer. I enjoy photography and I hope that next year I can take a weekend and visit the Appalachian Mountains in East Tennessee to create a fall portfolio. Until then I enjoy visiting the local state park, Montgomery Bell, for amazing photos. I am not solely a landscape photographer. Portraits are fun to take and create a sense of accomplishment when a moment in time is captured.
Part of the freelance work I do includes marketing, specifically social media campaigns. Educating my clients on proper social media usage for their organization or business is my intent while showing them how to promote themselves in a positive manner that attracts visitors and customers.
Also! I am currently taking signups for my 2016 Fall Mini-Session. Would you be interested? October 8th in Dickson County. Dependant on how many sign-up will depend on the location.
There is also a contest going on for a FREE Christmas Photoshoot. Make sure to check it out and nominate somebody you feel deserves a photo shoot. Having holiday pictures is always a fun thing.
I do need to note that I am a natural light photographer. That is important. I use the light around us, this means the majority of my work is outside. This isn't a problem as long as the weather cooperates.
I pray you have enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about me. If you have any questions or comments, please comment below. Let me know you are there!
Have a great day!
P.S. I do still write, I am in fact working on prepping for NaNoWriMo.

I am in process of reawakening the Muse. 6.5 years of academic writing has caused a stifle. I don't regret getting my degrees at all. I believe I have grown as an individual and as a writer. Now I just have to focus and dedicate my time.
The key to getting past the stifle is to push yourself. Not every writer has something brilliant to write everyday. Writing is a practice. Just like photography, there are days and days of okay shots and then one day there is the pay off.
The hope to have an amazing book for others to read and a visually stimulating portfolio for others to enjoy, involve the same dedication.
1. Get up every morning.
