bio:

I work primarily in black and white photography. I enjoy the challenge of seeing things in grayscale and trying to capture the image photographically. Black and white photography has a sense of timelessness and offers a break from distractions. It is both a form of expression and a means of documentation.

Since the start of the COVID outbreak I have found myself with more free time to explore dozens of online classes, read many books, garden and develop websites for myself and others. But most importantly it has allowed me time to walk many miles, exploring and taking photographs.

 

I attended university in Pittsburgh and graduated with degrees in Graphic Design and Multimedia Technology. I am a board member and graphic designer for the Pittsburgh Society of Artists.
