I bought my first camera, a Kodak Instamatic, when I was about ten years old.  It used 126 cartridge film and took a fair amount of my paper route money to buy and develop the twenty snapshots. Kodak_Instamatic_233I wrote my first ‘book’, The Story of Beau, a few years earlier about our French Poodle.  My first film, a three minute Super 8mm movie, Blizzard! was a documentary loosely based on the effects of a big winter storm on our neighborhood. I have always been drawn to stories-whether they are created with images, sound, or the written word.

Fast forward past two college degrees, stints in radio, television, still photography, and working on movie sets plus a long run in education, I am back to telling stories. I hope you get to travel the world over and tell your own story too. Thanks for visiting.

“There is no moment of delight in any pilgrimage like the beginning of it.” – Charles Dudley Warner


“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine


“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
