I bought my first camera, a Pentax ME Super with a 50mm f2.0 lens in 1982. I always wanted to be a photographer, I thought it was a cool thing to be. I got a Hasselblad 500CM in 1985 and trained as a wedding photographer. But I always wanted to photograph landscapes like Ansel Adams, which was kinda hard to do on Long Island in NY, so in 1988 I moved out to Oregon and aside from a few adventures over the years, have been there ever since.

I graduated from LaSalle Military Academy, and earned a Bachelors of Science from Portland State University. I spent five years employed by Continental Airlines as a First officer flying the ATR 42-320. 9/11 cut that career short, but it could have been worse...
