I can best be described professionally and as an artist as a “community photographer.”

I find visual beauty, humor and sometimes, special personal connections as I roam the neighborhoods of Niagara County looking for pictures. I revel in capturing the moment and get excited about the possibilities when I pause to wonder at beautiful light. I live my passion for this visual art, exploring news, Americana, landscape, abstract, composite photography and more.

I was born in Buffalo, N.Y. on a cold January day in 1960. In 1979 I became a student of photography as a senior in High School and continue to be so to this day.
