I've experienced success as financial adviser in the suburbs of Detroit, MI, for over 30 years. And yet, my life is balanced by what I believe to be an equally significant endeavor for which I've even more experience-photography.
During the course of my life it’s not only important for me to give back.
I also want to leave something behind that will stay with people after I’m gone.
Believing that “A photograph should tell a story that endures.”
My penchant for honesty is in the evident truths my countless photos have revealed over the years; truths about history, about nature, and about humanity. Since the age of five, I've been fascinated with the ability to document the moments of life through my camera lens.
Turning my lens toward the less apparent, yet most poignant, life moments.
Despite the memorable experiences his pastime and passion leads him to. I truly believe the essence of taking photos is “to capture a moment to share with other people.” Employing camera to document life moments ranging from a vineyard caretaker transforming grapes into wine, to the life-long wisdom shared in the eyes of nursing home residents; from the silent splendor of a vividly-painted building, to subtle emotions exhibited in the expressions of individuals I've encountered.
