As an 11-year old newspaper boy for the Milwaukee Journal I would study the pictures in the paper as I went about my route. After getting a Psychology degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee I would spend over two decades as a staff photographer at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Being a photojournalist has provided me with insight into the lives of so many people and gives me constant perspective on life. Capturing moments in time has been my lifelong passion. Sharing those images with others is simply why I love what I do. Having a father that was a photographer allowed me to watch from an early age how the camera worked. I guess it was in my blood to follow in his footsteps although I lost him before my career was started. My work has received many awards over the years but I work with the understanding that as a photographer you are only as good as your last picture. It keeps me striving for my best on each assignment. Being a freelance photographer now allows me to work with new clients and do personal work along the way. I live with my wife in a 150-year old farmhouse near Cedarburg, Wisconsin. We have a barn and land to roam free. I enjoy bonfires, chasing storms, and riding my bike. I am available for editorial and corporate assignments anywhere in the USA.
