In my spare time, I am a dog sports photographer and sometimes I do studio portraits.  I also participate in competitive obedience and rally with my cocker spaniel Elvis.  In 2017, I took time off work to travel in a camper van #vanlife and take photos of dog sporting and conformation events across the country.
