I am an eccentric, published author, artist, and photographer. While I do regularly take on commercial projects, my true motivation is inspired by an overactive imagination and boundless energy.
I love working with raw, enthusiastic talent, especially individuals with unique personalities and looks. The experience is just as important as the final image. I DO LITTLE, IF ANY POST-PRODUCTION OR PHOTOSHOP WORK--what you see is what you get. My own work is contantly evolving. Always looking for the next challenge.

Barring the occasional favor to friends and clients, I put the camera away to collect dust. A lesson learned the hard way long ago. Sometimes it's better to walk away than grow to hate what you love.

May 1st Lighting Workshop - Recap

We had an awesome group of photographers attending, each taking away something unique and personal from the workshop. I always love seeing photographers leave a workshop filled with enthusiasm to explore their own ideas and creative direction.

Seven years ago I went out and bought lumber and poles for a fence to section off a storage area. No sooner did I get started when I was called away for a paying gig far from home. Pulling into my driveway three months later, putting up a gate to the storage area wasn't at the top of my To-Do list.
Somehow, year after year, the fence never got finished. Sometimes I would pull the termite infested wood out of the weeds, search for scattered hardware, and make an effort to complete the project, but something else always came up. Paid gigs, personal projects, a lazy WOW day, even writing pointless, rambling journal entries always seemed to take
