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 all the other cameras I have owned over the years. I spent 12 years in the Texas Air National Guard as a telephone switch tech with the 221 CCS and have spent 42 plus years in the retail grocery business. When I’m is not shooting aircraft, I am out shooting wildlife. Later this fall I will finally receive my much-delayed bachelor’s degree in digital photography from SNHU.
