A third generation journalist writing about and photographing the Tucson Area
Grew up in a publishing family, I had two darkrooms to use! I've been published in sports, news, wildlife, landscapes, and social events.

I was introduced to digital images working as a graphic artist/pre-press in Chicago. Some of the clients were models, agencies, fashion designers, and high-dollar auction houses. I even worked on most of the small newspapers of the area no matter what their language.

Migrated to Tucson a few years back. I enjoy the desert life. Been using Photoshop since the early 80s and here in Tucson I've been experimenting with photography. I love it!
