As a boy of three I began working in my father’s photo studio, located in our home, to keep him company. By the age of eight I was directly assisting him in photography in and out of the Studio and darkroom. By thirteen I was photographing weddings for the Studio, was doing studio work with plenty of dark room time, and was the sports photographer for my High School. After my Freshman year in a Liberal Arts College, I transferred to the Memphis Academy of Arts, majoring in sculpture. After graduating, the following year was spent working on several sculpture commissions. Later, the pursuit of engineering a monumental public sculpture led me to Virginia Tech where I was offered a scholarship at The College of Architecture. I taught introductory photography during my time there.
Now a semi-retired architect, I am working diligently at my passion, printing some of the archives, and creating new imagery. The several media I use help translate my expression in different ways - my favorites being photogravure, as in the Rocket Science collection.
