where it all began.

As a six year-old, I recall seeing the Rocky Mountains for the first time on a family vacation.  W - O - W.  All I could think of

was how incredibly majestic and breathtakingly beautiful these mountains were.  Back in the midwest, the local ski hill

was referred to as a mountain, and there was a pretty big difference between a real mountain and that ski "hill".  I

immediately got out my disposable camera and started taking as many pictures as I could.  As a matter of fact, I used up

the film in my camera just on the mountains within 10 minutes!  That was the year I began to write and started drawing. 

I wrote poetry about the mountains, I drew pictures of the mountains and I even named a pet "Montana".  I was in love.  


My life would forever change, as the creativity that those mountains inspired made me a better person and opened up something I didn't even know existed inside me.  I moved to Montana in my 20s and have been living the dream since then.  My all-time favorite quote is by Herman Cain, “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” This couldn't be more true.
