Hi there.

If by chance someone who doesn’t know me happens by my little website, here is a little about me. I grew up outside of Houston, Texas with my parents and older sister. Both my parents have dwarfism, so when I came along it was pretty certain I would too. When I was around six, my mom got me involved at the therapeutic riding center in our town. The rest is pretty much history.

When I had back surgery around my thirteenth birthday, I switched from riding to driving. I began showing in Combined Driving Events in 1998, with our Welsh Pony, Eric. Everything pretty much snowballed from there. I competed up to Advanced with our breeding stallion, Tylwyth Mystic Prince (Ziggy). In 2008, I competed at and won Individual Gold at the World Championships for Drivers with Disabilities. Afterwards, I switched to a pony pair. I was very lucky to have very experienced ponies, Bert and Ernie. They taught me the ropes. These days my main ponies are Zoey, Bruno and Allie.

Around a year or so ago, I began riding again. I had Zoey started undersaddle initially to help her with her driving. Turns out Zoey is a phenomenal riding pony, and so I started riding her. She takes care of me.

I went to Savannah College of Art and Design and graduated with a degree in photography and graphic design. Currently, I take photos and work on freelance graphic design and web design projects.
