    My Photoshoot for New York Times

    I only had 20 minutes to photograph Tony and Grammy award winner Daveed Diggs at Album Studios in Toronto but in that time he and I bonded over the Bay Area, struggling artist memories and key family proud moments.

    Dear Blog, I'm so sorry I've abandoned you.  I took a bit of a break with some back issues last year and now just getting back into the regular swing of things.  Wanted to say a big thanks to Virtuoso Life Magazine for assigning me to my first travel magazine segment! The magazine unfortunately had to cut the print to half it's usual size, so I'm just lucky that this piece stayed in. I spent a good part of December and January photographing city vibes and staying away from Christmas decor and snowy sidewalks. The feature was all about Toronto's cocktail scene, a subject matter that I can really appreciate and get into! Thanks for letting this mama get out and experience some of the city's wonderful establishments. 

    Shameful Tiki Room, the tropical warm vibes and attention to detail is so authentic and fabulous, I felt so at home and nostalgic.

    Big thanks to Positive Side Magazine for assigning me to photograph Christian Hui for the cover and profile shots. I had the greatest time meeting and learning more about Christian while photographing him in his apartment and by the AIDS Memorial in Barbara Hall Park.  Christian has overcome many obstacles and challenges in his life but has successfully become an accomplished HIV activist and works to mentor and educate others living with HIV, to read Christian's story, see article here: http://www.catie.ca/en/positiveside/fall-2016/profile-back-brink

    I'm truly inspired by his incredible journey.

    Thanks to Veronica for all your assisting help!

    Feeling Florida - Gulf Coast Dreaming

    The Gulf Coast provided some extreme weather conditions, a tropical storm and lots of rain, but we were still able to get in some beach days and enjoy the nature and beach activities that Florida has to offer.   As you can see from the pics, I'm a bit obsessed with palm trees.
