Engineering has been my career; photography has been my passion. I received my first camera when I was twelve and have had one close by ever since.  There are days I head out specifically to photograph a subject, but have also found that some of my best shots are because something caught my eye.  I love the process of having my imagination take shapes, angles and colors and turn them into a piece of art.  I want people to not only enjoy my photography but to take away a bit of wonder from them.

The photos shared with you are representative of some of my different photographic interests.  I favor nature and the outdoors of Northern California.  I’m always looking for a new road or a new area to explore.  I enjoy seeing a story in an old lock, a bridge truss or a fencepost.  The abstracts are as I see the image in my mind.

I am currently a member of the Artist’s Collaborative Gallery in Old Sacramento, the Riverfront Art Gallery in Petaluma, the Vacaville Art League and Gallery, and ArtsBenicia.  My work has been exhibited in over a dozen galleries and shows throughout Northern California and has been included in the KVIE Public Television auctions.  I have also been an exhibitor at the California State Fair’s Photography and Fine Art Photography exhibits. I am a member and former director of the Sierra Camera Club in Sacramento and the Marin Photography Club.
