My love for photography began as a boy when I was taught the basics by my father. During a tour of duty in Vietnam, I purchased an expensive Nikon SLR camera and dreamed of becoming a photographer when I returned home. A family of my own and a new career put that dream on hold, however I always enjoyed taking photographs. Several years ago, after surviving another kind of war with cancer, I began to really see the beauty in our world. Equipped with a new awareness of life and improved photographic vision, I am now able to find beautiful scenes almost everywhere.
