I became interested in photography when I received my first camera, a Kodak Brownie, at age 7, as a Christmas gift.

I was unable to afford anything better until my senior year in college when I was able to purchase my first SLR, a Nikon FTN.

For three years I taught school in Australia and learned a bit about photography while exposing quite a lot of Kodachrome 64.

I have had a darkroom ever since returning to the United States but limited time to use it.

The introduction of affordable digital SLR’s and involvement with the College of DuPage photo program has sparked an elevated interest in image making which is reflected in the sample photos on this website.
