Born and Live: Oakland, CA
Study: San Francisco Art Institute 1973-1977 (BFA Photography)
For over forty years, through photography, I have been compiling a visual record of popular culture at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st centuries. From time to time though, I do get distracted by things that are bright, beautiful, or strange.
I studied photography at the San Francisco Art Institute in the mid 1970s.

1984 San Francisco Camerawork 10th Anniversary Juried Show
