Born in 1949 in Pennsylvania, I lived briefly in Arizona and subsequently grew up in Michigan. After
graduating form Michigan State University, I moved our family to Southern California, where we currently
live. I have studied Fine Art with an emphasis on photography and other two-dimensional medium, with
undergraduate studies at various colleges, as well as private photographic workshops. I have a degree
in engineering and masters in business administration.
I became more involved with photography as a serious form of self-expression in the mid-1970’s, when I
took a pivotal photographic fine print workshop with Don Huntsman. Although I have worked with other
two-dimensional mediums, primarily abstract landscapes with watercolor and acrylic, I have made my
primary artistic development and expression with photography.
I have chosen to keep my artistic work separate from my business career, and I am the co-founder of an
international known LifeScience consulting company.
While I develop and create photographic projects, I seek to understand my emotional responses and
eventually try to translate those feeling into a narrative.
I do not try to faithfully create images of what was in front of my lens in order to provide an exact
rendering. I use the urban and natural landscape as the beginning point of my artistic vision to try to
better understand my own internal landscape.
I create images that resonate within me and that I hope are seen as poetic metaphors.
