I started taking pictures when I was about 10 years old. Back then my father owned a pharmacy in Great Neck, NY that sold film and had a photo processing service. He generously encouraged me to take advantage of them. As an adolescent and teen I was the one who always had a camera around his neck.

I've loved taking pictures of western landscapes ever since I traveled on a multi-state teen tour in 1969. I moved to Arizona permanently after 4 years in the Air Force. Life has taken me all over the United States and while I was in the Air Force I traveled to the United Kingdom and South Korea. I’ve lived in Arizona since 1987 where I continue to take pictures of the beauty in the West while striving to become a better photographer.
