My passion for photography goes back to high school, where I took my first darkroom class. Even though I never could unwind my own film, I loved documenting the world around me and then watching, with great expectation, as the images rose from their chemical bathtub. Off and on throughout my life, photography has been a creative haven for me. I used my camera to document my father's last days as well as my son's early years. And now, with my iPhone, I focus on people photography and connecting with those I meet wherever I go.
