It has been my great pleasure over the past 40 years to serve in the field of photography in several capacities: educator, fine artist, commercial photographer, book designer, and advisor.

The highlight of these past years has certainly been the amazing group of individuals I have met, known and worked with. Equally, the students I have taught and who have taught me much.

I have a special gratitude to mentors who have shaped my career and have helped in creating a more clear path and direction. God has blessed me richly with these profound connections. I continue to feel honored to have known them all over the past 40 years.
