I am a primarily self-taught photographer living in Mid-Michigan. I migrated from film to digital photography about fifteen years ago, which was a catalyst to becoming much more serious about the craft, as well as marking the beginning of publicly exhibiting my photos. Since retiring from a professional career about 5 years ago, I have more actively explored the technical and creative sides of this media. I have exhibited widely and have earned recognition in local, regional, and national exhibitions. My photographs are also included in several corporate and private collections.
