I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio and have had a love of the outdoors since childhood. In high school I began taking pictures as a sophomore at Marlington High School. By my junior year, I was taking pictures for the Scenario, the Marlington High School yearbook. During my senior year, I was not only the Scenario’s photographer but the editor as well.
After graduating from Marlington in 1982, I went on to earn my associate’s degree in photography and multimedia through the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I married in 1985 and, with my wife Tina, raised two children. During that time photography took a back-burner for a bit, but now that love has resurfaced and I am back to doing photography.
My focus is primarily on nature, landscape, macro, outdoor and travel themes.
In the fall of 2014, I had the opportunity to display pictures of Walborn Reservoir at Stark Park’s Exploration Gateway for three months. This was a four-year project where I captured all four seasons of Walborn Reservoir.
In 2016 I was contacted by an author to supply a few pictures in a book called "She Sheds, A Room of Your Own" and in January of 2017 the book was released for sale to the public.
I am available to speak at club events and do one-on-one or group teaching. If you are interested in my current images for purchase/usage or you want to talk to me about photographing a project for you, go to my Contact Page and messaging me.
