about

I have been photographing since I took an introduction course in high school. At that time I had to borrow an ID saying I was 18 to see the work of Robert Mapplethorpe, the exhibition experience changed my life. It was not the controversial XYZ series that inspired me, but the meticulous control of lighting in his portraits and the outstanding print quality. I attended SCAD right after high school and earned my BFA in photography. After graduation I intended to see how far I could go with a career in photography. I spent time as a commercial photographers assistant and a digital technician in a commercial photography studio. That was followed by four years as a photographer and writer for a weekly newspaper. I began teaching photography full time in 1998, and I continue to teach and exhibit my work as often as possible.
I enrolled at The Academy of Art University as an online student in 2009 to acquire an MFA and to start concentrating on developing my work more conceptually. I completed my MFA in January, 2012.
