I was first drawn to photography as a teen visiting Italy with my parents. Then began using the darkroom in high school and stayed there all through college. I worked in camera store/photo lab for over two years selling gear and working as a Black & White darkroom technician. After that I ran my own portrait and wedding photography business for nearly 6 years. I will always have a passion for making photos.
