I began my career as a corporate designer and art director for ten years at Warner Bros Music and HBO. I traveled with my camera during my corporate vacation time, photographing tropical forest ecology for NGOs. I went solo in 1992.
Since then, I've been creating images, illustrations and assemblages for corporate clients, institutions, collectors and public installations.
In 2001 I began teaching others how to discover and explore their innate creativity. I now mentor emerging photographers and have led workshops at Maine Media Workshops, Santa Fe Workshops, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Lepp Digital Institute, Vancouver Photo Workshops, and at sea for UnCruise.
I also lead The Art of Travel and Street Photography workshops in Seattle, Cuba, India, Sri Lanka, Amsterdam, Paris, Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico.
To share my ideas, I've published articles in AfterCapture, Nikon World, Outside, Geo, Islands, Conde Nast Traveller, LA Times, NY Times, Audubon, Outdoor Photographer, Digital Photo Pro, Rangefinder, FUJILove, in books and have guest hosted the podcast Hit The Streets.
I now shoot exclusively with Fujifilm X cameras and have been selected as a member of the Fujifilm X CREATOR team.
When not immersed in my Seattle home studio appointed with collected objects and vintage technology, I build things, travel, sea kayak, and explore nature.
I enjoy meeting new friends, so I invite you to get in touch.
