My love of photography blossomed at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Studying under Esther Parada and Hans Schaal, I learned how composition, light and color combine to bring about an image that speaks to the viewer.
In my later years, I began to focus on nature where I feel closer to everything. Among nature, I find a meditative state, and try to capture the vastness and the details that create visual awe or a wondrous abstract.
As the master photographer Paul Strand said, "I think of myself as an explorer who has spent his life on a long voyage of discovery." As with Strand, I hope to keep exploring nature on a voyage with delightful discoveries.
