Our family darkroom, circa 1976.

At Santa Elena Canyon, Big Bend National Park, Texas

I learned photography by trial and error. I'm still learning. 

In junior high I spent most days after school in a slightly larger than phone-booth sized darkroom that my father built, dealing with all those smelly Kodak and Ilford photo chemicals and a totally analog and manual process. 

Upon receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas at Austin, I became a professional television news video/photojournalist, editor, and live field producer at Channel 24 KVUE-TV ABC ‘Action News’ in Austin, Texas.

After eight wonderful years in the TV news business, I moved on to entrepreneurial ventures, spending much of the past 22 years heavily involved in the Internet domain name industry, and traveling extensively---57 countries and counting!

No matter the subject, I’m always imagining a mood I want to capture, and how I want it to appear in final form, before I snap the shutter or roll the video on my camera.

Thank you for visiting!
