Profile Information

When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I feel the pain in the world
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Human Rights
So what is it?
Educational & economic disparity & a lack of respect for diversity.
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
I believe in bottom up government. I believe in inclusive rather than exclusive behavior. I believe a paradigm shift needs to occur to save our planet. I believe in collective energy and energy healing as a primary force in the ability to affect change. I believe the ipeace community can be a powerful force in creating the energy we need to sustain us and direct us on to a safer path. Ipeace could perhaps have political ambassadors that represent their communities in translating cyber-activism to meaningful activism in real time. I believe attending the events is a start but we should all collaborate and support one another to take more of an active role in pushing forward peace initiatives that begin here,with each of us, one by one, from the bottom up, changing the world where we can all co-exist in peace - this should be our legacy, this is our responsibility
Can we change the world?
More about me
I taught Special Education and was an administrator for several years in an urban school district - San Francisco. I am also a documentary still photographer who has produced a body of work concerned with social, political and cultural issues. My work represents innovative portraits in Black and White silver gelatin, sepia, color and halide prints. Each portrait is a narrative illustration. The portraits have been appearing in exhibits in the Bay Area and across the country for several years. Starting with my work photographing politicians, civil rights leaders, protesters, and continuing with American National heroes, I am learning the value of becoming an astute observer of American culture. Collectors include Senator Hillary Clinton, Vida Blue, Rosa Parks, Former Mayor of S.F. Willie Brown, N.O.W., Reverend Jesse Jackson, N.D.C., Danny Glover, and Tipper Gore to name a few. I have been fortunate to have my work accepted into permanent exhibitions @ National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, Rosa Parks History Museum in Montgomery, Alabama and the Smithsonian American History Museum in Washington, D.C. I will put up more photos in this area but for now just want to keep it light.

Recent work includes a documentation of the new American hero, interviews and photographs of extraordinary Americans who are making a difference through their humanitarian efforts.
Currently, I am working on documenting the activities of progressive organizations committed to advocacy for non-violence, human rights, economic, social, and environmental justice.

Works in progress focus on the new wave of the American spirit highlighting interviews and photographs with local community heroes who have made meaningful contributions to their community. I am hopeful that with the U.S.A.'s new administration, a revitalization of the human spirit will surface.

I am interested in learning film as I would like to make a documentary that highlights the new American Hero and a short film on Peace.

Hi Princess - replying very late to a kind comment you made about my music sharing last year - I have had a bit of a bad year health-wise and apologise for not having got back to you sooner to say THANK YOU! It was very remiss of me - I was touched.
This is a beautiful page!
Take care!
