Intro
Background
I am originally from Alamogordo, New Mexico. Alamogordo is a small town near Holloman Air Force Base and White Sands Missile Range. This is the location where the Government tested the first rockets following WW II. It is also not far from the Trinity site, the location where the first atomic bomb was tested. Holloman is currently home to the F117-A Stealth Fighter Wing. I grew up surrounded by the military and Cold War technology. Because of the fear of a Soviet attack, we often conducted bomb drills when I was a grade school student during the early 1970's. New Mexico is a beautiful, isolated area that has made a lasting impact on me. I try to return every year and never tire of photographing its people and landscapes.

I now live in the Midwest. In May 2005, I was fortunate enough to make a visit to Japan. I toured the cities of Osaka, Tokyo, and, my favorite, Kyoto. I loved the country and the people of Japan, and hope to return one day.

Education
I graduated from high school in Alamogordo in 1982. I then attended New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM and the University of Missouri at Columbia, Missouri. I completed degrees in History, Anthropology, and Computer Graphic Design.

Interests
I am very interested in digital photography, travel, and collecting Southwest Native American art. I also have a strong interest in 1950's history and culture.
