I was born and raised on the shores of Lake Superior in Marquette Michigan. I earned a BA in Art from St Johns University (MN) and spent ten years working at two daily newspapers: The Mining Journal (Marquette) and the Ketchikan (AK) Daily News. I have since been full time free-lance for for over thirty years.

I have been published in hundreds of publications including: Alaska , Outside, Midwest Living, Lake Superior Magazine, New York Times, Washington Post, Michigan History and The National Enquirer.

I have thousands of photos on file, mainly of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan but have many other subjects. I do all types of photography including: commercial, industrial, product, underwater, brochure work, scenic, aerial, digital restoration, wildlife,logo design, and I also do portraits and weddings. Samples of my work are all through my website.

I am married and have twin sons and two grand children.
