I feel fortunate my father; a photographer and artist in pastel and oil, as well as a musician introduced me to the arts, which also included film photography and darkroom processing at a young age. Serving to the rank of Master Chief and 22 years in the Navy and my ongoing travels; I have seen many wonders around the world, experiencing so much of what our world has to offer. Even though I have been diagnosed as legally blind I continue today to have the privilege to enjoy my on-going passion for discovery through photography, painting and writing allowing me to share my experiences with you.

Washington is my home with my extremely patient wife Cindy, Fibber McGee a sweetheart, but noisy Corgi and the monkey faced Jasmine our adopted Pug.
