Giving Back


My family taught me early on what it means to give back. It is who I am, and what I believe in.  It doesn’t take much to make a difference in someone’s life. From the simple things like donating a gift certificate to a fundraiser,  to creating meaningful memories and art for a family in need- it is the least I can do. Working with Organizations such as Flashes of Hope, really puts my  life in perspective and makes what I do feel like a gift that keeps on giving.  Please let me know what I can do for your special cause.  (Flashes of Hope Flashes of Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating powerful, uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.)
