I blog, photograph, live and work in Canada. Passionate about photography, student of Social Media and alway interested in staying healthy, I write about photography, social media and health.

I've found Hub Pages originally as a way to produce some extra income but what I'm finding here is a great group of knowledgeable caring people.  Hub Pages is also a place to nuture each other and provide some comradery for the otherwise lonely work of writing.  

If you like my work please comment or send me a note.  I'm alway happy to hear from fellow hubbers.  If I have't followed you it's only because I haven't discovered your great work yet.
