Photography has been my life’s work for an entire career.



I began as a full time photographer in the US Navy.  Some of the highlights of my military service included membership on the US Navy Skydiving Team (as a jumper/photographer), followed by a two-year course of study in videography at UCLA.

After concluding my military service, I was the head videographer for a public TV station in Fairfax County, Virginia.  I have also produced several commercial video documentaries which have been aired on network television.

I now spend my energies maintaining an extensive landscaped garden on my property on the Northern Neck, bordering an estuary of the Chesapeake bay, and providing photography and videography services for weddings, reunions, parties, and other celebration.
