I am a native of Detroit, Michigan, where I had a forty year career as a news photographer, corporate photographer and photography instructor. Now semi-retired, I moved to New Orleans in 2009. I currently reside in the historic Lower Ninth Ward. While I no longer do any commercial work, I continue to record the world around me; the day to day goings on in my neighborhood and the city I now call home . When I'm not shooting I keep busy playing saxophone and guitar in several local bands.
