I became interested in photography at an early age, first taking photos with my mother’s Brownie box camera, and later, with my father’s Argus 35mm camera. For years, I photographed primarily in the Midwestern United States. Upon graduation from high school, I purchased my first camera, a Pentax KX 35mm SLR. I moved from the Midwest to Colorado in 1986, and finally to Alaska in 1991, where I have been ever since. I now photograph exclusively with digital equipment.
