First and foremost I enjoy and love life and am filled with gratitude for all it offers. Celebrating the outdoor world through active recreation and contemplative pursuits enables me to appreciate and gain a better understanding of our natural world as well as connecting with my spirit. It’s a privilege I’m grateful for each day.
My image-making adventures began with photograms and a pinhole camera, followed by B&W & color film processing & associated print making. Digital imaging has now opened up vast new horizons for interpreting the world I live in.
I am educated as an engineer and have worked in the environmental sector as a professional engineer. Additionally, I ran a successful home remodeling business. Recently, I retired from New Mexico's Air Quality Bureau.
I live and celebrate now, the only time in my life that's “real”. I’m reminded of this each week with my grandkids--they only know about living in the moment; yesterday & tomorrow are concepts of society, not something they were born understanding. Sharing special moments in their lives and capturing once in a lifetime events through photography allows me to continue to explore and perhaps gain a better understanding of myself and the universe.
Through photography I have had the unexpected pleasure of euphoric happiness that transcends time. I am continually amazed at how time seems to “stand still” when I am in the moment capturing a bird, flower, tree or landscape. I’m transported out of my body into the soul of the scene.
In my life, I consciously choose the blissfulness of joy & happiness over the drudgery of sadness & misery. The latter has come to dominate our news and society. Focusing on positive, enriching moments has proven quite rewarding. We are attracted to what we feel & believe. I love the joy of discovery and the journey I’m on. Living in the “now” is life!
Enjoy & Thank You for Visiting!
