About Me I try to find the good in all people, to be patient, kind, compassionate, and understanding with everyone I meet. This is fundamental to my sense of self and feeling of purpose in life. I'm the sort of person who tends to think about others before themselves, and if someone else is being hurt, I will do anything I can to help or protect them.

I've been told by several people that I have an unusual view of the world, that I find beauty in places that other people never notice, and when I had the equipment, I did my best to photograph the physical manifestations of it to share with others.

I've been through trauma and have PTSD. I tend to be a shy and quiet until I get to know someone and build trust with them and then I'm affectionate, talkative, and my sense of humour gets to come out more.

I love looking at the world. Especially nature - autumn and winter are my favourite seasons - but I also love the unique beauty in things like patterns of rust or vines overtaking an abandoned building.

I became disabled in 2007 and currently use a walker.
