I started processing color negatives at the age of thirteen, having had the great good fortune of a junior high school buddy who had access to a darkroom. I managed to put together a good darkroom at Allegheny College, from which I graduated as an art Major. I attended San Jose State’s photo-journalism program, worked as a master printer and helped found and run a small crafts gallery/custom jewelry shop in Santa Cruz’s Cooper House.

I became a carpenter…

Three children and two grandchildren later, I’m now a serious photographer again.

I now use mostly digital technology, which allows me to afford a good ‘darkroom’, and create images of the beautiful area in which I live.
