My passion for aviation began as a Civil Air Patrol Cadet many years ago, and my interest in photography goes back even farther. I still have my original Kodak Box Brownie along with almost all the other cameras I have owned over the years. I spent 12 years in the Texas ANG as a telephone switch tech with the 221 Combat Comm Sqdn and have spent 42 plus years in the retail grocery business. When I’m is not shooting aircraft, I am out shooting wildlife. Late in 2018 I was finally able to complete my bachelor’s degree in Photography.
