Who knows where a passion for the visual arts, and photography specifically, comes from. It isn’t just found in those remarkable and fortunate professionals who create the artistic framework that will help define our times, but in the enthusiasts in all the arts who try to do the same. I think most photographic enthusiasts are multi-faceted in their craft. Like so many of my colleagues, I have an eclectic approach, creating images of nearly anything that is of interest to me, and reflect my view of the life, environment and culture around me. My goal is to produce images that give me and hopefully others some enjoyment but that are, at the same time, unique to me, that tell my story and define my view of what is around me.
I spent 23 years on active duty in the US Army and then retired from SAS, one of the world’s great software companies. I’m a member of Cary Photographic Artists and The Focus and have had the privilege of exhibiting at various venues in the Triangle.
