I was born and raised in New Hampshire when Elvis and the Beatles dominated music. The Presidents were Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon and the "war du jour" was Vietnam.


After a tour of duty in Vietnam, as a combat medic, I finished my education, got married and moved to upstate New York where I eventually retired from the medical-utility business and moved to the Gulf Coast of Florida.



I was not born with a camera in my hand. I had cameras in the film era but really had little interest in photography. It wasn't until I started hanging out with my good friends and photographers, Lou & Lea Bedinotti, that I realized what I was missing.



While digital technology has opened doors beyond the limitations of the camera, I strive to create artistic interpretations of my subjects while preserving the reality of the image. I am constantly amazed at how cameras bring the world to life. They have an incomparable ability of making ordinary moments become extraordinary.



At 66 years old, I consider myself “beginner” with so much to learn. The one thing I have going for myself is a passion to share what I see through my eyes.
