~ Me ~
A (now) Retired vice-president of data, technology and member engagement from 9-5, an artist at heart always, my circuitous route to this stage of my creative being began way back in high school, when I shot in black & white and developed the images in my home darkroom. As often happens, the “busy-ness” and business of life took me away from photography, but my creative eye and artist’s heart remained. My photographic spirit re-emerged with the birth of my son in 1994 and I has been clicking away since.
My strength is revealing the inconspicuous within the everyday. I purposefully look for the overlooked, so that my lens may uncover hidden geometric and repeating patterns. I look for color, shadows and contrasting textural elements in the world around us.
A long time Nikon "shooter", I recently (2021) sold all my Nikon equipment and purchased a single, fixed lens camera. I am now shooting solely with a Leica Q2 with a single focal length of 28mm. This has really forced me to slow down and be more purposeful. To think. To compose. I am really enjoying "re-learning" and discovering photography all over again.
I received my Bachelor of Business Administration degree from James Madison University and my Master of Science degree in Information Systems from Hood College. While a long-time resident of Frederick County Maryland, I am originally from (South) Jersey.
I hope you enjoy my small photography space. Thank you for visiting.
