Just back from 3 months in Europe, south of France to visit my family and work in Italy, Slovenia and Spain!
I was living in Sonoma county for many years and relocated to Greenwood near Auburn, CA to be closer to my son. I am a photographer and digital artist, have been photographing Arabian Horses since 1994, covering events, races in the US and all around Europe... into portraiture and dancers photography at the moment. I also ran a house painting company for almost 10 years and continue to do a little bit of the trade here and there but having the camera in my hand is way more enjoyable than a brush and roller :) and my biggest addiction besides riding my motorcycle is to use my creativity with Photoshop!I like working for myself and challenges, enjoy being a dad, trying to figure out what makes my son happy, curious, trying to find healthier ways of living, more meaning to daily life, facing my hopes and fears, learning to appreciate more what life brings to me, to be more grateful for having an amazing family and some strong friends, learning, learning .. "My politic is to be an artist" For the past 2 years, I have been photographing a lot of belly dancers, mostly Tribal as well as Burlesque events. I have met a lot of wonderful friends in the process, a community I am in touch with on a regular basis.
Spirituality holds an important place in my life...
I have been riding motorcycles since I was 14, got the bug and still ride today but more carefully, so my son keeps his dad around for years to come.
I am trying to be more grateful for the things I do have in my life, the solid friends, a very positive family...
Being new to this area is a bit challenging after living in the Bay Area for 23 years but the Gold Country is also very magical, especially the YUBA RIVER where I love to go hike, meditate...but sharing some hikes would also be lovely!
My strong French accent et oui :) even after 20+ years in the US it is still very strong. Frog talking here! Franglish! :)
In my opinion,
"GOOD COMMUNICATION" is key to a successful relationship.
I am not at all afraid to express my own feelings and looking for same!
