Research and teaching interests


Photography allows me to forget my fast paced life and capture the color surrounding me daily. Specializing in event, product and detail photography, my work has been published in the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Reserve interpretive center, Gold Prospectors Association Magazine and in annual solo exhibits.

One of my current projects, “Senile Projectile” is about a Flagstaff machinist building a motorcycle engine and frame (from scratch) attempting to break an existing record at Bonneville’s 2014 Speed Week, which currently stands at 168.385 mph. Photographing Bonneville’s Speed Week annually allows me to capture the passion and mechanical artistry surrounding men and their magnificent vehicles.

Teaching photography at Northern Arizona University combines my passion for travel, education and photography. I have been sharing my knowledge in software and photography related fields in both secondary and post-secondary levels since 1995. Currently, I serve as a volunteer and instructor for the Friends of Arizona Highways Photo Workshop team which provides me opportunities to educate and learn from others while traveling around our beautiful state.
