My passion for photography began when I first came across my mother's Kodak (the kind with the flash you rotate). For several decades photography has always been a part of my graphic design career. With photography I am able to capture that moment in time that inspires me when going on a hike or just stepping out my front door. Some photos I choose not to photo-edit, while others I transform into an illustration. My greatest moments in learning were with other professionals and students at RISD, and later at Salisbury State University where I studied Advertising Design.
