About the Photographer

My interest in photography started while serving a 25 year career in the United States Navy. I have always been interested in being able to capture my experiences on film (now digital) to share with friends and family later. My love of the outdoors and desire to document work projects, hiking trips and the general beauty I have seen as I traveled around the world inspired me to pursue a serious career in photography.

Upon completion of my Naval career, I continued documenting places and projects during my second 20 year career as the head of a civilian Explosive Ordnance Disposal company working on projects throughout the United States and overseas.

I retired in January, 2004 and moved from Maui, Hawaii to Redding, California with my wife Linda to be closer to our children and grandchildren.

Once in Redding, I quickly began to explore the wonders of the North State and began providing my prints and photo cards to many of the local Redding outlets. I have been commissioned to provide enlargements of my photos to many local businesses and residents.

I have loved landscape and nature photography all of my life and now I get to pursue that adventure and share it throughout beautiful Northern California. I am truly a fortunate man.
