Always interested in the arts, I found myself with a camera in hand as early on as I could decipher how to use it. Born in a small town in Northern California I am an only child with the most encouraging parents I have ever met. Upon which I learned to work hard for what I wanted. I spent time on my high school yearbook staff as a photographer and many hours in the art department working on painting and print making when I wasn't emerged in the dark room. When I graduated mid-term from high school I sought out a recruiter and followed in my grandfather's footsteps of becoming a sailor. I spent three years aboard the U.S.S. Fletcher stationed out of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and toured the world twice. The endless days and nights aboard a naval destroyer certainly helped to cultivate my creative imagination to feed my passion for imagery and in particular of photographic imagery.

With a successful naval career under my belt I was ready for college and headed back to Northern California to the most beautiful and breathtaking place in the world, Humboldt County just a few hours south of the Oregon/California border. I entered Humboldt State University actually as a Pre-Med Student until I could no longer ignore my true passion and mid way through I changed my major to Art History and Museum and Gallery Studies. Along while, taking a course in photography and having one of my first images entered into a professor's lecture on image manipulation, I was very proud to earn that Baccalaureate of Art. While living in Arcata, California I held numerous solo exhibitions of my photography and of my paintings. I held a prestigious internship at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, California and solo curated a retrospective of work by the museum's namesake Morris Graves. Moving to be closer to family I relocated to Sacramento, California and began my body of work as it now stands.
