Photography started for me on family vacations when my parents gave me their SLR camera. In high school I took my first photography course with the legendary Couchie, and developed the skills to grow as a photographer. I built my own home darkroom in the basement, and spent much of my free time under the orange lights of the darkroom processing my own black & white and color prints. In college, I continued taking photography courses, and expanded my film-based photography skills. With the conversion to digital photography I sold my film cameras and shot my last roll of film in November 2001.
My favorite things to photograph are landscapes and travel photography, and I am often in the outdoors hiking, biking, camping, traveling, or overlanding. I love teeth, Bikram Yoga, The Purple Pieman, Indian Food, and my favorite movie is Clue. I live in central MA and run the Tufts Dental Facility for patients with developmental and special needs in West Springfield, MA.
