We are the collection of our experiences; here you can see my experiences and who I am. I started taking pictures as a small child with my fatherís camera. At the age of 11 my father had taught me the technical side of using a camera, ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. I started developing my own black and white film and making prints with the equipment he used growing up. That is the extent of my formal training on the technical use of a camera. In third grade my art teacher, Daryl Howard gave me the artistic license to view with world of colors and shapes. These experiences allowed me to move forward and build my life and take pictures along the way.

The photographs here are taken from my vacations, work travel and everyday life. I hope you will enjoy and add them to your collection.
