I am a photographer and printmaker quietly living and working in the small - north Florida - Gulf island community of Cedar Key.

Fascinated with photography ever since I was a child, growing up in Germany, I laid aside photography after graduating from high school in Virginia, and entering college.

Taking a detour away from photography, I became an infantry officer in the Marine Corps, and did not seriously return to photography till after my retirement, when I took art and photography courses at Florida State University and earned an MFA in Studio Art. This made it possible for me to teach photography at FSU in Tallahassee, and Florence, Italy.

Most importantly, it let me make any kind of photographs my heart desires. I just 'retired again' after a stint of teaching photography and managing the Photo Lab at FSU.

The 'showing off' page on this website reflects some of the publications and shows featuring my work.
