I'm located in Green Bay, Wisconsin and I have enjoyed photography since I was a child and was given a camera by my grandparents. It seemed magical to see what the camera saw and how different it was from my views of the world around me. As I grew up I graduated to larger cameras and lenses and the magic continued. Traveling and seeing new places and new things helps to heighten my awareness of what is around me. Capturing the common in uncommon ways is part of my artistic vision. Sometimes the details are recognizable and sometimes they are abstractions but I like both ways of approaching photography.
