March 29, 2011, I was in Washington DC and awarded "Ambassador for Peace" by the "International Federation for Peace" for 15 years of humanitarian work. 90% done with my own money, I saved working as a wedding photographer. This was a great honor, a day I will NEVER forget, and I will live up to the standards of the "International Federation for Peace." I want to thank Olga Crupper for her support from the Human Relief Organization, a mentor and amazing women. I am now the International Advisor for the Human Relief Organization. Meaning I am their Documentary Photographer, will travel to all 23 countries document situations of extreme importance, and facilitate support groups in these countries. My first journey will being in August 2011 to Guatemala to document the struggles of Latin American Indian Women. I am grateful for the opportunity to be of service and help make the world a better place for as many people as I can in my lifetime.
