"I received my initial photographic training in aerial reconnaissance during my tour of duty with the USMC. I worked at a local commercial photo studio as an assistant and film processor for six years after the military. I then started my own studio specializing in advertising and commercial assignments. I am married with three children and reside in Washington, West Virginia."
"West Virginia is my birth place and the state where I reside and call home. During my photographic and personal travels, I have not found another area that can replace that special bond with West Virginia."
