I am from Rochester, New York. I grew up in music, art and theater in the 60's. I earned a BFA from SUNY Buffalo in 1969. My company was The Rose Group, a national and international award-winning communications design firm. I’ll skip the history and go to what’s most important now: Love of color and composition drive me to the camera where I can get instant gratification. Lifestyle also drives me to the camera. We travel seven months of the year with four spent in Mexico. I revel in capturing the palette of the world around me as we drive through it. Luckily I am always the passenger.
