A photographer since 1960, I studied photojournalism at the University of Miami. While there I was influenced by Wilson Hicks, Picture Editor of Life Magazine. After serving in the Army as a photographer, I returned to McMinnville and worked as a technical photographer at AEDC.
In addition,I have won numerous State and Regional awards, edited Warren County Tennessee: Pictorial History, and have had numerous photographs published on the cover of Spoon River Poetry Review. I have also been published in Photographer’s Forum: Best of Photography.
I find inspiration in everyday life in a small town, pushing the frontiers of both photography and digital art. I consistently place in state, regional, and national contests.
