Reggie has a passion for life. In her life she takes great pleasure in studies of art, music, and of history. She loves people and she loves nature. She learned at an early age. Her Grandfather, Henry M. Mayer, was a naturalist and a well known nature photographer in the Cleveland, Ohio parks region.
Reggie had always had a passion for music. But, she equally had a strong interest with the images her grandfather would bring up in his dark room. Her grandfather would thank Our Good Lord for everything you could see in those photos. Even when the two of them would hike the Ohio trails together, Grandpa Mayer would look up to the trees and raise his arms and give God credit for the sky and for the woodlands, and all that was so beautifully perfect in nature.
Reggie now has a combination of her love for music and her admiration of recording images from event that take place weekly at her favorite music venue, Swallow Hill. Swallow Hill is the second largest Folk music school and performing arts center of its kind in the USA. The first is located in Chicago.
