I live in Denver and am from Los Angeles. I retired from the U.S. Air Force in 1998, and from U.S. Federal Service in 2016. I’m 65 years old (+/-) depending on when you read this. I was a scientist by profession, but am now pursuing my interests in art, journalism, photography and science.
I enjoy shooting sports and dance events, low-light action photography, environmental or athletic portraits, rallies, protests, political events, galas, and some other events / activities as time permits. I mostly do these on a volunteer basis and don’t charge for my services. I don’t do weddings or private events as a rule.

Currently, I volunteer for MSU Denver Athletics. I shoot many of their events as well as help them with their public relations photos. I also volunteer for nonprofit organizations from time to time.
I’ve shot a number of events of various rallies (for example BLM, me-too movement, and teachers rallies), art festivals, parades, galas, and other political or non-political events. I try to focus on covering the event. Most of what I shoot is close to Civic Center Park and the Capitol as I live within walking distance of those places.
Suggestions and feedback are always welcome.
I am a member of the National Press Photographers Association and the Colorado Photographic Arts Center.
Licensing and Commercial Usage
I will consider requests for license agreements for commercial usage. I’ve written many of these in the past. For nonprofits, I’ve mostly done this free of charge. If you have a request, please send me an email.
