I have devoted nearly twenty years to the study of photographic theory and practice. I have passed on that passion and knowledge through teaching at the college level for over a decade. My artistic practice ranges from commercial clients that include specialization in portraiture and still life photography. Additionally, I focus my fine art projects towards investigating the relationship where words and images converge, where memories become mythologies, and how environments contribute to personal narratives that result in intimate books. I currently am a faculty member at Highland Community College in eastern Kansas.
