I've been shooting since I was a young man, starting with film and now digital. I still pull out my film cameras a few times a years to keep me well grounded. I became a commercial photographer late in life in the early 90's and for the past 6 years have focused mostly on my fine art work and personal projects. I am currently working on people who are into vaping, another form of smoking. I am an American who has lived in the Philippines for the past 30 years and has lived outside the US for the past 40 years. I am married , with 2 children, 2 dogs and live in the heart of Manila.
