Call it a coping skill or a curiosity: I have a habit of making things. Sometimes out of metal and clay, but images and words too. In some ways the medium doesn’t matter: I create because it deepens my experience of this great, wild world.

In the broadest sense, I think of myself as a maker & collaborator: the act of making reminds me of what good fortune it is to be alive; collaborating with others is a way of being in the world.

The power of story trumps all: scientists, artists, friends, lovers, family—all of us—we use stories every day to inspire the work we do.

Photography has been my constant companion since I inherited my father’s Minolta at 16. It was the camera I used as a rookie reporter on Cape Cod, where I became wise to the difference between telling a story and owning your voice. Since then, I’ve worked as a journalist and a marketer, in sales and in business management, while experimenting with colors and clay and light and metal whenever I could.

Today, I live with my family in a small town in north central Massachusetts, on a quiet pond, where I work in proximity to nature’s finest—watchful eagles and elusive loons at the water’s edge, honeybees zipping to and from their hives like Starfleet ships, and when I’m really lucky, an occasional moose gliding past my open window.
