|Born in 1956 in near Chicago. All my relatives lived in the big city. I fell in love with big buildings. Old and new. I went to Desoto High School near Dallas before going into the Navy in 1975 as an Intelligence Specialist and spent the next 4 years at Sea. Besides learning about military intelligence, I was trained in photography and photo lab work. (I had my own “Mini Lab” for highly sensitive photos in CVIC the Aircraft Carriers Intelligence Center.)|
Honorably discharged from the Navy in 1979 and attended the University of Texas at Arlington majoring in Accounting. I was employed in Public Accounting in Fort Worth upon graduation and became a Certified Public Accountant in 1992. After about 8 years in public accounting, I went into Corporate Accounting which is where I remain today. In 1997 I co-founded a Water Filter Manufacturing Company called Aquasana. Though I sold most of my stock in 2009 to a Private Equity Group out of New York, I remain employed by the Company and am still have meaningful ownership. I love the business and sales are still rising quickly. We are located in Haltom City and Austin, Texas.
My wife and I bought a condo in Downtown Fort Worth in 2004. (on the 34th floor of The Tower) I can see (and photograph) East, North and West. We are on our 4th condo. All looking a different direction and I love each. My wife and I have been married 32 years. We never had any children.
I love Fort Worth for a great combination of beauty, history, weather and economic activity. My favorite thing about Fort Worth is that it has so many buildings that are original to the past. (Mostly the Teens and Twenties, my favorite eras.)
I have taken over 900,000 photos since 2009, mostly of architecture. My love for photography followed my love for architecture. Though I have no meaningful knowledge or education in architecture but it is just where my interest lies.
In 2013 I was named by Fort Worth Magazine as the best photographer. A real honor for me as I am not a professional photographer.
