Life is a journey complete with surprises, challenges, dark valleys and mountain peaks that is richer when shared. Walk with me as I reflect on lessons learned and the learning process.
For my mid-life crisis I enrolled in Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) for graduate studies. I graduated in 2013 with an M.A. in Christian Studies, and an M.A. in Systematic Theology in 2014. My undergraduate degree in economics is from Wheaton College.
Prior to TEDS I was a full-time stock and freelance photographer. My life in the industry spanned the shift from film to digital, and drastic changes in licensing and pricing. Small portfolio of images is available at www.kimkarpeles.net, and can be licensed at www.alamy.com.
An avid reader, a fan of Thai and Mexican food, and a gym-regular by necessity, I dwell in a Chicago suburb overrun with chipmunks.
