Watching an image appear in a tray of chemicals hooked me from the beginning.  It caught my imagination and never let go.  Eventually I bought a camera and a simple enlarger, then the adventure really began.  It's been an amazing ride, working with great people, traveling the country, spending time with wonderful people along the way.  Photography is a craft, always something to learn, something new to explore, someone new to meet, something new around the corner and always the unexpected.  A great crew and making images makes me tick.  We built Steel Gate Studio from scratch, a place to create and gather.  All in all, I live and breathe photography, a tasty warm Krispy Kreme and BBQ are a close second.  Thanks to all the people that have been part of the journey so far, I'm in your debt.  I can’t wait to see what’s next.
