I began my photo career as a photojournalist having attended the University of Missouri School of Journalism from 1989 -1991. I am primarily interested in the way things appear naturally: I only set things up if asked to for a portrait. I prefer to find things. Discovering something is more fun for me than making something up. I still photograph using film for a number of reasons too boring to get into. Let's just say I like the cameras better and prefer darkroom work to hours in front of a computer.
I have been living in Portland since 1991 and take the vast majority of my photos here. I belong to two photo groups locally: the Lightleak group and the Portland Grid Project.
