Born and raised in Portland Oregon, short stays in Fairbanks and LA. My wife and I are raising three kids in NE Portland, one has graduated, one goes to Grant High School and our youngest attends Irvington. My wife owns a flower shop in The Pearl District downtown....where I also have a small studio. I have always had some sort of camera in my hands. Regular 8, then Super 8 and eventually Super 8 with sound movie cameras as a kid. When we started a family, video seemed to make sense. Film photography was always present, and eventually digital came around, but more editorial than art. The past few years I have been learning and experimenting, really enjoying the challenge todays camera and editing can produce.
