Experience – I like to take my camera for a drive, or a walk, or a hike. As an avid hiker/backpacker I explore and photograph out of the way places. I like to capture images of interesting people, landscapes, cityscapes, and the macabre. In my San Antonio Street Photography series, a photograph displaying men’s hats is as meaningful as an old cowboy sitting on the running board of his horse trailer. My Chicago Street Photography series records local graffiti, a man playing an odd-looking accordion, children playing, reflections in windows and, naturally, some unusual and nearly abstracted views of Chicago landmarks. Two of my favorite photographic topics are my Odds and Ends (& Creepy) series (images of old shoes, discarded junk and strange juxtapositions); and the outdoors (images of the Canyonlands National Park, New Mexico, Three Rivers Petroglyphs, Salinas Pueblo Mission Ruins, and many others).
After serving twenty years in the United States Air Force as a dog trainer, I retired in 2005. I am currently employed as a bomb dog trainer for the Transportation Service Agency (TSA) at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. I have also trained service dogs and, yes, I do photograph dogs!
