During my career as a CFO with an automotive supplier, I would take photographs to capture the beauty found while traveling and to relieve much of the career stress. A few years ago, I left the corporate world and began taking photography courses at Oakland Community College in Farmington Hills and found the hidden artist in me.

 I am an avid black and white film photographer, using the old fashioned method of dark room development to produce my photos. My work has been on display at OCC and Lansing Community College in East Lansing, and is currently on display at the Northern Michigan Artists Market in Petoskey, Michigan, and the Gaylord Council of the Arts in Gaylord, Michigan.

I am working on a project called "Scenes from the 45th Parallel" - a result of all the times I have driven Up North and passed the sign at Gaylord for the 45th Parallel. It made me curious as to where else the 45th meanders and I have shot scenes in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. I also love shooting photos that personalize one's surroundings - be it shadows from a lace curtain in a cottage window, flip flops outside the back screen door or children playing outside. I am available to look for such scenes at your Up North residence and can be contacted at
