Welcome, and thank you for visiting my site.

About Me

I grew up in Burlingame, California and went to Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, graduating in 1974 with a degree in Theater Arts. It was while living in New York City after graduation that I first picked up a camera, learning how to develop film at home and make prints in the darkroom. I left New York to return to California in the early 80’s, landing a job as a software programmer, a career in which I stayed for the rest of my professional life, working as a programmer, designer, manager and software architect. Along the way photography got lost, other than the usual vacation and special event snapshots. 

After retiring in 2014, I decided to dive back into photography. The results you can see here.

I am a member of ImageMakers in Monterey, CA and a member photographer and volunteer at The Center For Photographic Art in Carmel, CA. I reside in Carmel Valley, CA with my wife Elneda and our two black labs, Mulligan and Norton. Aside from photography, I volunteer with the Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District and Norton and I are a therapy dog team at the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.
