Santa Fe, New Mexico

Thanks to the interstate highway system, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything. -- Charles Kuralt

About Me: I was born and raised in rural Ohio, where the cows out-numbered the people and I learned the difference between kettle corn and cattle corn at an early age. Realizing that there was more to life than corn, I moved to Cincinnati to study fine arts and history at the university. Upon graduating, I became involved in local theatre and television production. The Travel Junkie, a travel-related television show, was launched, and I became the writer, director, and eventually, producer. The show wasn’t a far jump, but a long drive, to Hollywood. As I continued my education at U.C.L.A., I obtained work in theatre, television and the film industries -- along with raising a family -- until I retired in 2009.

Another chapter in my life complete, I moved with my long-time partner to Santa Fe, where I am learning photography. My first images were captured by several point-n-shoot cameras until I recently upgraded to a Nikon D700. Wish me luck. When I’m not traveling and photographing, I lead a book discussion group, volunteer for an archeological preservation society, take as many cooking classes as possible, and enjoy plenty of good wine while listening to classical Jazz.

I bid you Happy Travels in your life!
