I started taking photographs in 1962. I studied photography under Robert Nakamura at San Diego City College. I also attended the Art Center College of Design. It was during this time I learned to print my own photographs. I received an Honorable Mention at the San Diego Reader Photography Exhibition 1976 and 1977. I received Best of Show and first place in the Visual Expressions art exhibition in Temecula, CA in 2006, and first place in photography in Art From the Heart juried art show in Lake Elsinore, CA in 2009. My photographs have been published in Petersen's Photographic, the San Diego Reader, and Nalu Magazine. My occupation is a teacher in the Lake Elsinore Unified School District. I currently work in film and digital photography.
