Photography has always been an important part of my life. My interest in photography began when I was five years old. This was when my father first let me assist him in his basement darkroom. Together we developed black and white photos and I learned the basics of photography. In High School I was a photographer for the school newspaper and yearbook. In college I studied chemistry but contunued to take pictures and won a photo contest. I continued my academic studies and became an Optometrist but always found time to pursue this other passion. Over the last several years I have become more involved in nature and landscape photography. I began hanging photos on the walls of my home and office. Both my friends and patients have encouraged me to develop a website and share my photos. Welcome to my gallery!
