Jersey near Pennington, I spent a number of years adventuring
through 4 colleges from Wisconsin to Oregon. Between college
stints I found jobs working at the Grand Canyon, a fishing lodge
in Alaska and cooking for geophysical crews on the North Slope
of Alaska. I finally settled in sunny Southern California and
while taking acting class from veteran cowboy actor Peter Breck,
I began photographing classmates for their comp. cards. I "broke

for a Robinsons department store catalog shoot. From there I
assisted photographers for about 3 years before starting my own
