After a nearly twenty-year career in the information technology field, with many of those years feeling dreadfully unfulfilling, I realized that my passion lied in creativity. I thought, what better field is there, in the middle of my life, to leave a well-paying career for other than the arts? So I took the plunge, went back to school to study art and photography, and never looked back.
As the photo/video technician at Cal Poly SLO, I now get to mix my passion for teaching with my deep understanding of technology and photography. Helping students achieve their creative goals is something that gives me great joy.
In my own creative practice, I love to create cinematic and dramatic scenes using complex lighting either in studio or on-location.
