I was born and raised in a small rural community in central Illinois.

After graduating from the local high school I proceeded to obtain my Architectural degree from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
Working for a large international architectural firm was my entry to my chosen profession.
After 20 rewarding years with this firm, my wife and I, along with our son made the decision to venture away from family and friends and move to Tampa.
Practicing architecture for 30 years is still enjoyable and rewarding.
Several years ago I was looking for a hobby to improve my life balance.
Photography gave me the escape and artistic freedom I was looking for.
Travel, and nature photography are the types of photography that I most enjoy.

I appreciate you taking the time to view my website and galleries.
