I have journeyed through many places and careers before returning to my home town of Chicago, having acted in film and on-stage, toured Ireland as the driver for a popular Ska band, explored Monument Valley on horseback, risked my life as a bike messenger in Manhattan. I have travel as far east as Egypt , Turkey Israel & Palestine and as far West as Australia , New Zealand and the South Pacific. Throughout it all, I have maintained a love of photography. What was a part time hobby is now my full time passion. " Always have a camera always be ready to take the picture"
