I studied art history, film production and philosophy at San Francisco State University. After I graduated in 1978 I began acting and directorial training at SFSU Theatre Arts as a graduate student and at a SF Theatre Company. After appearing in a few productions I decided to put his artistic life on hold while I focused on my family and have had a successful career as a real estate agent working in San Francisco.
In 2006 at age 50 I returned to school to study photography and art at the City College of San Francisco and took up acting again. I've acted in several local films and on stage.
In 2009 I was inspired to use my photography to create designs for fabric prints after discovering how I could "paint with light” by taking photos of street and neon lights at night using long exposures with camera movement to create abstract images. I move my camera like a painter moves his paint brush, creating imagery that flows and moves in shapes that reflect the human form and work perfectly for printing on fabrics for fashion and can be applied to a range of products. I also love to take photos of people, places and things all of which I use for creating designs for fabric prints and designing fashion with my prints.
In 2018 I showed prints of my work with SF Open Studios, at a solo show in SF at the Towns End Restaurant, in a group show at the Hotel Adagio in downtown San Francisco and at a pop-up event in the arts district of DTLA. I've contributed prints to the Art for Aids charity benefit which sold at auction.
