Growing up on the coast of Texas much of my time was spent in and around the water. I had two and four-legged siblings, some small and some large. Water and animals have always been in my life which is probably why both have been prominent in my personal work.
As a kid I was in to art and liked taking pictures of happenings and friends never putting much thought into it. When I started college I knew I wanted to do something creative but wasn’t sure what. After a year of random classes I decided to take an aptitude test. The results came back with photography as number one on the list of career choices. Then I began thinking about creating images.
I worked as a photographers' assistant in CA and NY before going out on my own. I was a freelance photographer for many years never losing sight of my personal work.
I quit accepting assignment work in 2010 and began teaching photography.
I have work in public and private collections.
