My lighting career began in the 70's, with an Associates degree in Photograpy. I later worked as an assistant in car photo studios in Detroit and L.A.

In the 80's, I was doing set design and construction, painted backdrops, and prop building for still photography and film.

Then the 90's came along, and I turned my attention to computer graphics.

For the past 20 years I have been involved in 2D and 3D computer graphics with several industries, primarily entertainment and visualization. I love to combine all my interests: photography, design, construction and most of all, lighting, to create both realistic and fantastic environments.


My wife and I have moved to the country, and I now do freelance/contract work for various companies.
