While growing up in a small town in Northeastern Ohio, I first visited coastal North Carolina at the age 12. I was awestruck by the natural beauty of the region and knew right then that I had to find a way to live here.
Fifteen years later in1985, I was finally able to make the move. I have been very fortunate over the last 35 years to live on or near the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
I am a self taught artist who was drawn to photography early on. This medium allowed me to travel to great places and meet some wonderful people along the way.
In more recent times, I have expanded my focus to include mixed media and remastering of some vintage collections. However, I am continually drawn back to my true creative passion which is photography.
Decades later, I am still very grateful that my job allows me to be outdoors and immersed in the beauty of the natural universe.
