Born, Chicago, IL
Met Jay Boersma who taught me Beginning Photography and instilled a true love of the medium. He also made sure I understood that I would probably never make money at it. I smile to this day at his honesty and wisdom.
Worked with Eugene Richards who keeps my passion for photography alive.
Worked with Andrea Modica who helped me to visualize the spectrum/continuum of intervention or control a photographer may exert with the subject.
Worked with Bill Douthitt, a National Geographic photographer, who encouraged me in pursuing this project.
