I appreciate art and enjoy the process of creating visual works. Since I was very young, I have been into drawing, painting and even sculpting. My father introduced me to photography with his 35mm (film) SLR. Now I'm shooting photographs as a career. The emotion with creating digital images is different, but it is still a visual medium and I enjoy it immensely.
I'm based in Lancaster,California but attend college at the Art Institute, North Hollywood. I'm a retired veteran with 20 years of service with the U.S. Air Force -having lived in Europe and traveled to the Middle East. From 2010 until 2012 I lived in Great Falls, Montana, where I shot a lot of landscapes and wildlife. Now, my concentration has shifted toward hot rods and retro pin-ups. I like interacting with a diverse bunch of people.
