I take photographs with the hope that viewers may appreciate elements of beauty in the world around that they might not have noticed before. Each image reflects some unique circumstance that was simply there and which I had the good fortune to notice.

My photos have been displayed at the gallery of the College of DuPage as well as in its literary magazine, Prairie Light. The Glen Ellyn Library in suburban Chicago displayed about thirty photographs last fall and a series of five of my photos comprise a permanent installation in the Glen Ellyn Park District boardroom.
