About Me

My journey in photography

I discovered my interest in photography in a high school class where I got to develop film and make my own prints in a dark room.  I enjoyed this class enough to then volunteer as a teacher's aid, getting more time in the dark room.  But when I left high school my interest fell dormant due to the cost and inconvenience of film photography.  Now that good DSLRs have become affordable, I've made the plunge back into photography.  I created this website to share my work with family, friends and anyone else willing to have a look.

My life

I was born and raised in Milford, OH, a suburb of Cincinnati.  I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior at an early age and continue to seek a better understanding of Him so that I might be a better witness to Him. 

I've also had a strong interest in science and mathematics for most of my life.  I graduated from The Ohio State University with a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering and now work for a jet engine manufacturer.

Lastly, I'd like to say go Buckeyes!
