Photography is my creative outlet.  Capturing a subject, finessing it into a final piece of art and seeing it hung for others to enjoy gives me immense pleasure.  "We have art so that we shall not die of reality," said  Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche
Originally from Kansas City.  Physical Therapist by day, Photographer at all other times. Self-taught.  Always learning.
