From an early age, I dreamt of flying but followed my love for chemistry instead. I have my Ph.D. and recently retired from 3M in St. Paul, Minnesota. Golf and aviation photography are my hobbies but the season for both, living in Hudson, Wisconsin, is limited. My wife and I love to travel where most of my photography has been done. I was awed by many of the ISAP Member portfolios and hope to meet some of you, learn new techniques, improve my skills, and someday inspire others to challenge themselves as you have inspired me.
