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.
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.
