Though my interests are wide-ranging, there are themes common to all my photographic projects.  I am fascinated with the re-interpretation and re-contextualization of history.  I like to play with history the way that children like to play with insects- sometimes by the quiet enthrallment of intense observation, other times by pulling off pieces of it, just to see how it might still work

My interests in history is what led me to "alternative," or antiquated photographic processes. 

I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a BA in Art in 1992, and from California State University at Fullerton with an MFA in Creative Photography in 2005.

I am a Senior Lecturer in Photography at the University of Texas at Arlington, where I have been teaching since 2009.  I have also taught photography at numerous institutions in the Dallas/ Fort Worth area, including Collin College, the University of Texas at Dallas, and Austin College in Sherman, TX.
