After a 30 year career in custom woodworking I have redirected my creative energy into large format black and white photography.

The interest in black and white photography developed in my formative years, growing up looking at my grandmother's coffee table filled with family photos that would make my imagination run wild about the people and places I saw.

I feel a strong connection to the land and people of Sicily, which is where my family comes from. In 2013 I began an ongoing project photographing people I met there and sending them finished photos.

My daily practice of quieting my mind through Qui Qong meditation carries over naturally when out making photographs. Having a still aware mind for what comes my way.
