My love for photography began at a very early age however my career in professional photography began at age 22. I was fortunate and able to move to Santa Barbara, California in 1973 and completed my education at Brooks Institute of Photography. That was a fulfilling experience I will always cherish.
In 1976 I graduated and moved to Dallas, Texas where I began my professional career in photography. I have a varied background which has included a significant amount of studio products along with a wide background in photography for magazines, advertising agencies, graphic designers and corporations.
In the mid 1990's I was led in the direction of stock photography which allowed me to use my wide experiences in photography to produce images for a fast growing market.
In 2001 I closed my Dallas studio and moved to Portland, Oregon, where I continue to live and enjoy.
