Biography: My interest in photography began in high school when I was a photographer for the yearbook. Over many years I explored everything from 35mm street photography to large format landscapes. I attended the Ansel Adams workshop (on a scholarship) in one of the last years he was still teaching. I now work exclusively in digital and find myself most interested in the compositional elements of photographs. I sell a print now and then, but photography has always been an avocation. My “real” jobs have been in the fields of biomedical research and pharmaceutical development.
