I have been photographing for 40+ years and I am still thrilled every time I capture something special in nature. I live, breathe, work, dream, and teach photography. This is my 18th year of teaching photography at San Dieguito High School in Encinitas. Along with my love of teaching kids, I have a passion for night photography and storm chasing. I love sharing this passion with my students and realize how lucky I am to get to teach what I love. My work has won numerous awards including Best of Show & has been shown in magazines, museums, galleries, and personal collections.
I am first and foremost a storm chaser and nature photographer. Most of my work is night photography of the Milky Way, star trails, moon shots (including the 2017 Solar Eclipse), and thunderstorms, including cloud formations and lightning. I try to share with others the awe and spirit I feel when surrounded by the power of nature, her fury, and the incredible beauty in the storms she produces, where each image is like no other. Sharing my work with others who may not be as fortunate to witness these natural phenomena makes me especially happy.
