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 the exploration of creativity with others. I now mentor and teach workshops locally and at facilities including Maine Media Workshops, Santa Fe Workshops, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Lepp Digital Institute, Vancouver Photo Workshops, Bald Head Island Arts and UnCruise.
I also lead cultural travel and street photography workshops in Cuba, India, Sri Lanka, Amsterdam, Paris, Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico. I am faculty at Seattle Central Creative Academy and University of Washington's photography program where I have been twice nominated for the Distinguished Teaching Award.
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, SHOTS, FUJILove, in books and guest host the podcast Hit The Streets. I shoot exclusively with Fujifilm X cameras as a Fujifilm X Delegate photographer.
When not immersed in my home studio lined with favorite collected objects and vintage technology, I travel, kayak, explore nature and any place abandoned and inviting.
I enjoy meeting new friends, so feel free to get in touch.
