Initially I started with film, processing and printing in the darkroom, and creating works of art for myself and my clients' needs. As my skills developed I now use them with the digital tools available to all of us. With my years of experience I teach what I love and do every day - photography.

I am a professional photographer who is experienced working with a variety of corporate and advertising clients. I have an MFA in Photography, as well as 5 years college level teaching experience. I was a nominee for Teacher of the Year in 2016.
