I am a photographer and printmaker living and working, for the last twenty years, in the small, Gulf island community of Cedar Key.
     After retiring from the Marine Corps, I freelanced as a writer and photographer for sailing magazines.  In addition, I contributed writings and photography to water oriented books and publications.
     In 1991 my wife and I temporarily moved to Tallahassee, Florida, where I attended Florida State University and in 1993 received my MFA in studio art.  Subsequently I taught photography and art at FSU in Tallahassee and at the FSU Florence Study Center in Florence, Italy.
     Since returning to Cedar Key I have devoted my time to pursuing personal art projects, directing the gallery at the Cedar Key Arts Center, and teaching and managing the photography program at the Arts Center.
     In addition to the MFA, I hold a BA and MA in History.  My wife and I have two adult children.
