Background: Primarily self-taught, I've spent over 40 years exploring self-expression through photography. I originally worked in a black and white darkroom environment. With the advent of advanced techniques, I switched to digital methods around 1998. That marked the beginning of an intensive period of discovery and advancement of my art that still continues today. I grew up in Kansas, finished my degree in Sociology at Wichita State University and moved to Arizona for graduate school. Later, I took a job with the Indian Health Service in Anchorage Alaska, where I met my wife Connie. We married in Montana while building our first home and going to graduate school at Montana State University. I completed my PhD in Biostatistics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1989. We then moved to Idaho Falls, ID where I worked at the Idaho National Laboratory as a statistician when not following my photographic interests. In 2007, I retired from statistics work, moved back to our Bozeman home and now pursue photography full-time.
