Originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, I now live in the San Francisco Bay Area. In the 1980s, I began photographing and took classes and we built our own B&W darkroom.

I bought my first digital camera in 2010 for a trip to Costa Rica then joined the Contra Costa Camera Club b/c they were said to have field trips, but didn’t. So I began those as well as monthly education nights which I still organize. I have been president of the club as well as secretary and vice president of our sixteen club council and on the board of our local PSA Chapter.

For the sake of my back, I now use a Sony 6300. At the moment, my favorite subjects are abstracts and architecture During the course of COVID 19 we are canceling trips to architectural meccas: Chicago, NYC and Barcelona. But I still have San Francisco!
