I've been photographing since junior high school when I discovered my school's darkroom. I love street photography and exploring new cities with my camera. My current camera is a Canon 5D Mark IV.

I am a retired U.S. diplomat, serving from 1993 until 2016 with assignments at the U.S. Embassies in Senegal, Rwanda, Israel, and Kuwait. I was the U.S. Consul General in Kolkata, India, and the U.S. Consul in Baghdad, Iraq.
