I am embarking on a new path and I don't want to take the journey alone, that is why I'm creating Remy's Village because I need a little help reaching my goals.

My main goal is to turn my corporate photography career into an animal saving adventure. I've spent the last 17 years beating the pavement for my commercial photography career. Some years have been smooth sailing and some have been rough. I wouldn't change any of the learning curves or the time it took me to get here, but I want something different now. I want to shoot for the love of shooting and because I have a passion and desire to capture something to share with the world. After a brutal break-up, a move, loss of pets and money and support, I hit rock bottom, which taught me all kinds of things about my character. I also realized no one was coming to my rescue. BIG disappointment.

So, I started Googling for what was next for me. I picked the ONE solid, consistent love in my life (besides my photography) and for me, that was animals. Fast forward a year and half later and I'm graduating this month with a certificate in Zoology & Wildlife Conservation. It hasn't been easy, I'm not gonna lie. Getting back on my feet after years of change has been a daily challenge. I mean, I had to sell my engagement diamond to pay for school. The life lessons I've had thrown at me in the last 7 years have been relentless, unwelcome and frankly hard to get through with a smile on my face. I'd love to share some of those stories with you here, in a more private, chosen forum. I've held a lot of the hurt inside, but it's time to let that all go now and usher in a new life for myself. 

By becoming a Patreon to my page you are helping me get back on my feet and reach some really interesting new goals. I want you with me every step of the way and I promise to document every step of my new journey, in any way I can: write, photograph, cast a pod, vlog, whatever the cool kids are doing these days. I'll figure out how to do it to share with you all. First stop, the UK in May to run an 8K. Hey that rhymes. See, things are already looking up!

For this generous level of backing, I’ll give you my time.

Let’s hang out and talk shop. If you’re not local, let’s video chat and hash it out.

My first, immediate goal is to train for an 8 mile race in the Channel islands on May12th for the Durrell Foundation. They have amazing programs for endangered species management and recovery. I would like to raise $1,500 to donate and also put me in the running to meet Henry Cavill, a long time crush of mine. Dreamin' big here baby!
