I was a medic in Viet Nam 1968-69 against my will. I came back from Viet Nam with heavy PTSD and did not want to live. My wife encouraged me to return to university at WSU in Detroit telling me that the GI Bill would make financing this easy. I did return to university 3 months after coming back from Viet Nam a zombie. I had become interested in photography during my 3 years in the army. I switched from a BA degree in Theatre that I had been doing from 1963 t0 1967 when I was drafted to a BFA in Fine Art and Photography. I loved it. We were held up at gunpoint twice during that time and we left to live in England, where she was from, in November of 1971. I taught photography and theatre at the Portsmouth College of Art. All during these years since 1957 I had performed as a part time professional clown. I performed for orphan children in Viet Nam. In 1982 I had built the clowning up enough to be able to leave teaching at the Art College and I have made my living as professional clown ever since. This has allowed me to enjoy my search for beautiful images to share with others.
