I've discovered the same passion for the digital medium as I have for photography as an art form. My background began as a photographer 28 year ago and in time, progressed toward the digital medium. My artistic influences include the great Abstractionists & the Surrealists including Jackson Pollock, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Franz Kline, Mark Rothko, Mark Tobey, and Lenore Fini, to name a few.

I've been a corporate instructor and lecturer in the application of digital art and design for the past 29 years internationally. I've been exhibiting digital fine art around the world at galleries such as Durban Art Museum in South Africa, Citizens Gallery in Yokahama, Japan, and CECUT Museum Of Mexico to name a few. Part of his exhibiting won me 1st place in the prestigious Seybold International digital arts contest.
