Born and raised by a pack of wolves... actually I was raised on a dairy farm in upstate New York where I learned to appreciate nature, hard work and my family. I always have said that I had a camera in my hand since I was 6 years old. I remember the day I found my mother's Kodak box camera in the attic. Currently I am working with my fourth Fuji camera, a 9000.
I have been living in Chicago since 1995. I have been an urban pioneer since 1997 when I moved to the south loop. I bought a condo in a building that was built in 1929 to store movie film. My partner and I enjoy cooking, travel, photography and meeting new people.
