As a photographer of most everything, I have an awareness and eye for detail, form, color and composition which I was blessed with from childhood.

My home since 1980 has been in and around the beautiful Cleveland, Ohio area. Prior to Cleveland I've lived in Oahu, Hawaii; San Diego, California; Danville and Chicago, Illinois; San Fransisco, California and Buffalo, New York! And having traveled to many other parts of the United States and the Asian countries of the Western Pacific I've developed a broad sense of our world and beautiful earth (yes, they are separate).

After high school I joined the U.S. Navy for four great years and then went on to college after that. I am constantly learning more about the profession of photography as advances in digital technology and software applications continue to advance.

Work Experience:
As I mentioned in my bio, after high school I joined the U.S. Navy where I advanced to the rank of 3rd Class Petty Officer Radioman where I not only learned about communications but word processing as well. Having been Honorably Discharged I went to school and majored in Business Management. I worked at my school in their word processing department which lead to a nine-year job with Alcoa (Aluminum Company of America). I resigned from there and traveled the country for a year after which I returned to Cleveland and began my photography career while simultaneously holding a "day job" as a professional chauffeur. Fifteen years later I am a full-time professional photographer specializing in many different areas of photography, digital imaging and graphic design.

As an astrologer I can, through creating a natal birth chart for you, tell you not only things about yourself you of course already know, but things you may not be aware of that more than likely others know about you. We all have a "blind" side to ourselves and through natal astrology one can learn more about themselves and why we do the things we do. Also I can interpret current and future trends in your life and advise as to what times are better than others to take advantage of opportunities or to hold back on activity until a better time. All things do pass - good times and bad. Some "transits" (movement of planets through your birth chart) last longer than others thus creating longer periods of prosperity or difficulty. Astrology also provides great insight into others you may want to know more about whether it be a partner or employee.
Relevant Education / Credentials
Taught by several Cleveland, Ohio area astrologers and through many texts and publications.
