I've been shooting photos since around 1989 or so. I built my first darkroom while still in high school and have worked in mini-labs as well as a medical research photo lab. In college I studied Photo Illustrationa and Photo Communication at Ohio Universy and currently work as a programmer doing back end support for various websites.

In 1999 I moved to Yuma Arizona where I can finally live in the desert and get out exploring on a regular basis. I now do a lot of hiking and exploring of old trails in my truck, Street legal Manx buggy, and sand rail. The Imperial Sand Dunes of Southern California are about 20 minute away and one of my favorite places to get away from it all so I take a lot of photos out there now.
