My journey in photography started with problems that I encountered with my 110 instamatic when I was ten years old. I could not understand why my photos weren’t the exact image that I saw in the viewfinder. Since then, this journey has included a Bachelor of Science Degree from Brooks Institute of Photography, teaching at Art Center College of Design and Academy of Art University, and a commercial career in Los Angeles and San Francisco with clients that included Gap, Nike, Lands End, Macy’s, Kohl's, and Banana Republic. I have lived in Michigan (Go Tigers!), California, Massachusetts, Idaho, Oregon ....and currently call Ohio home.
