After five colleges, I was told to graduate or pay for school myself, finally settling on a BA in Journalism with a minor in Art. For the past fifty years, I've painted with light, using my camera instead of a paint brush to make the ordinary extraordinary. I have shot for clients from Coca Cola to Hennessy, Cessna to Boeing, IBM to Microsoft, and most major car companies; my resume also includes most of the Fortune 500 companies. Today, I find pleasure, satisfaction, and joy in teaching what I learned along the way.
