I photograph people. Not every person I photograph is remarkable, but they are wonderfully human. I attempt to show the themes most people share as they move through their lives — the joys and fears of childhood, the love and pride of parents, the intensity of people working, playing, cooking, buying, selling, worshiping, and, sometimes, the courage they bring just to living – our common humanity.

I live in Los Angeles and prior to becoming a photographer, I worked for 45 years as an actuary.
