In 1978, I purchased a 35mm camera. Between 1979 and 1986 my work was published in several Chicago magazines, displayed in numerous exhibitions and purchased for the collection of the Standard Oil Company of Indiana. My first solo show debuted during this time at Northern Illinois University. In 1980 I received a a BA in Film from Columbia College in Chicago.
In 2008 I returned to exhibiting my photographs. In 2013 I migrated to using digital media. I since won the Bronze Award from Art Forward in 2015 and 2016 and the Cash Jury Prize from Art Fomenar in 2017. I have won many competitions resulting in numerous exhibitions. Recently I exhibited outside the USA for the first time, first in Belgrade, Serbia and then in Rome, Italy. This September I have ten works at a museum in a four-man photography exhibit.
