About Me

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.
