As a photographer I combine my photojournalism background with my commercial photography experience and sprinkle it with portrait design to create images that preserve your memories and family history.

Early in 2002, through a series of testing and portfolio review, I earned Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) status from Professional Photographers of America. I maintain my membership with PPA and the Native American Journalists Association.

I grew up in suburban Seattle and have worked in Washington, D.C., Melbourne Beach, Fla., New York City, and Arlington and Alexandria, Va. Much of this time was spent with UPI, AP, Gannett News Service and USA TODAY. In 2015 I relocated from a small Maryland town just off the Chesapeake Bay to Melbourne, Fla.

Traditions and visual family history are a celebration of love and unity. The images are treasured among future generations.

I look forward to creating your personal or commercial treasures.
