I grew up making things of paper, clay, wood and fiber. I became a physician in order to do something humanly useful, and to live in the West, in a visually striking and culturally diverse environment.
In 2001, while working full time as an obstetrician / gynecologist, I took a darkroom photography class at Pima Community College. I closed my medical practice in December, 2010, to become a better artist. I received an MFA in photography at Arizona State University, in 2017.
My photographs of people and landscape reflect our shared presence.
