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. 

In 2014, I decided to dive back into photography. At first my work was all digital. In 2019 I started to work with palladium, using digital negatives to produce palladium prints and in late 2020 began to work with cyanotypes. 

I am a member of ImageMakers in Monterey, CA

I reside in Carmel Valley, CA with my wife Elneda and our black lab Norton.
