I grew up in Mt. Prospect, IL and have been an avid photographer for many years. My education in photography began in high school where I learned how to develop film and make my own pictures. My education and training continued at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, where I graduated with a degree in photography.
I prefer taking photos in black and white but will use color or other mediums when the moment calls for it. My work has been on display in the Performing Arts Center Gallery at Grand Valley State University,the Arlington Heights Historical Museum Gallery in Il, and a lobby in Chicago. I am also a member of the Chicago Artists Coalition.
