I was born in the Midwest at the midpoint of the century to conservative parents that had an educated, tolerant view of the world. Brought up rurally but with a small amount of traveling received an education that was fairly eclectic. When I graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California they wondered when I would come to my senses and get a real job. I never did.
Working in the commercial art world has shown me the value of persistence, to benefit my wallet and my heart for over 30 years. I started out in traditional photography until in 1980 I was struck with the potential of Digital. In 1989 I started working with Kodak, Adobe and Photoshop to develop my own digital skills and teach others. I have shot everything from airplanes to zucchini with more art than commercial. I have hung out of helicopters shooting aerials, shot submarines underwater and been suspended out the back of a speeding truck to shoot motorcycles. Itís a crazy way to make a living but the skills acquired there have helped me immensely in my battle with the winds of the fine art world.
