At age 24  1976, I began taking photographs. Armed with a Kodak 110, driving a ’68 Ford Torino, I left my home state of Rhode Island in pursuit of the West Coast.

Santa Barbara, California has been my home for the last 40 years. This is where in 1982 I met my wife of 34 years; we’re the proud parents of two sons.

My first motorsports event was the 1976 Long Beach Grand Prix. I worked with a Nikon Fe with a 105mm micro lens. From that day on, motorsports became my passion. I am currently Senior Staff Photographer for Victory Lane magazine; I am a member of Motor Press Guild.

My images have been published in Victory Lane magazine, Vintage Oval Racing, SVRA Quarterly, Asphalt & Rubber, Road Racing World and Deep Magazine.

I have also worked as photographic assistant to world-renown motorsports photographer Jesse Alexander, who has inspired me and is my mentor.

In addition to my professional work, I enjoy photographing wildlife, people, and places – and whatever else I see.
