As a photographer, my method and approach aims for the sweet spot where craft and aesthetics
combine without a seam.

My career as an artist began at eight, destroying my parents’ property by cutting photos from
magazines and gluing them into collages. As a teenager I learned to make my own photos and develop
them on the floor of my bedroom with a makeshift darkroom I dismantled every night and rebuilt the
next. As a grownup, I worked as a carpenter, contractor, and kitchen-and-bath designer until it became
clear I should be doing what I love most, so here I am.

All my careers taught me to value collaboration and the importance of craft and furnished me with a
strong back for hauling equipment around. 

A few of my long-term obsessions: design, science, good writing, how things work, history, music,
movies, and trying to understand what's going on inside the mind of my Wheaten Terrier, Whiskey.

I'm sure he feels the same about me.
