Though my passion has always been in artistic pursuits, my formal educational background is in math and science, including Bachelors degrees in Physics and Mathematics, as well as Masters degrees in both Astrophysics and Computer Science. Professionally, I have worked with the Hubble Space Telescope project, the James Webb Space Telescope Project, and as a modeling/simulation engineer at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
My art is where I express myself most freely, and I am a self-taught artist and writer with no formal art training. My photography concentrates on film-based pinhole (lensless) photography, most notably of architectures and landscapes, along with some portrait work. I also do lensed photography with large format film cameras and digital single lens reflex cameras.
I have been published in print-based books, electronic books, magazines, and blogs, and I have been interviewed for my photography. I show my work at exhibitions, and my art has been purchased by enthusiasts and collectors.
I live and work in the Baltimore/DC area, and I am available for commissioned art photography, as well as to give presentations on pinhole photography to groups and clubs.
