Although trained in the financial services industry, I have followed my passion for photography for some time. I started out in the 1990s creating and selling travel-oriented images from the U.S. and Europe; later, I expanded into cityscapes. Now my portfolio also includes landscapes and black and white street photography. I have been published several times, including magazines, newspapers, books and travel guides. When I finally retire from the corporate life, I hope to make photography a full-time pursuit. This Chicago native is now living in the San Francisco Bay Area, enjoying immensely the photographic opportunities that abound on the West Coast.
