While studying engineering at Brown, I had the good fortune of taking a couple of photography courses at the Rhode Island School of Design. There I learned my way around a B&W darkroom, the basics of composition, and a love for the beauty of a black and white print. Through the years of building my professional career and raising a family I set aside my photography for longer than I should have but when I picked up a digital point and shoot for a trip out west in 2009 it rekindled my passion for making photographs. I haven’t done any work in a darkroom for years, but those early lessons in bringing out the best of a negative onto paper are still with me. I am a Midwesterner by birth and upbringing, but I’ve lived in Atlanta since the early 80’s, when I ventured south to further my education and pursue a career. I still can’t say I’m a Southerner, but I do now call the South my home, and much of the work I do touches on the themes of southern life and landscapes.
