A prodigal photographer, I bought my first SLR in 1972 at the age of 17, shot everything in sight for about five years, then drifted away to pursue my career in research chemistry. My interest was rekindled in 2008 and I've experienced a renaissance in my love of photography ever since.
 I'm currently enrolled in the Photography Certificate Program at the Kansas City Art Institute and expect to complete my studies in 2016.
