as a Behavior Trainer, working primarily with folks who have behavioral issues. I recently took a new position as a Staff Trainer, however, so I no longer have to wrestle with people. I also teach as an adjunct at a local college, primarily such fun subjects as web design and digital photography. I am studying for a BS in Photography right now.
I’ve been an avid photographer for many years, but a serious student for only the past few. I bought my first decent digital camera 11 years ago when my granddaughter was born, but have since upgraded. Currently, I shoot with a Nikon D3s. I enjoy low light photography, and the D3s is known for its excellent control over digital noise. I constantly have to make the determination, however, do I put money towards new camera equipment, or buy the kids new shoes. Their feet grow so fast!

I have been working on three major projects recently. First is a series of multiple exposures, as seen on the left. Double exposures are done in-camera, with black & white conversion plus additional manipulations done in Photoshop.
Second is a series of interiors shot inside abandoned buildings in downtown Canton, Ohio, my home town.I discovered these spaces over a year ago, and have been spending time photographing these beautiful, moody empty spaces. Finally, I have been shooting dance photography for many years. I love to capture the emotion, grace, and athletic prowess of the dancers.
