I've been involved in photography since high school, and hold a B.A. in journalism from Indiana University with a specialty in photojournalism. The Photo-J background has left me with a deep interest in portraiture. I'm also endlessly fascinated by how everyday objects fall into bold, graphic compositions all around us, if we have but the wit to see it.

A few years ago I took a few night-sky pictures and got hooked. Bad. Now I'm doing narrowband imaging from my backyard and seem to have five telescopes.

And I seem to have this thing about ice. Probably just as well, living in Wisconsin.
