Three careers began in the 1970's. My first was as an English teacher in a public school north of Boston where I taught literacy skills and American literature. The second was as a hiker and explorer; the New England mountains were my first destination with a summer trip to the West expanding my horizons. Nature became my inspiration and I began photographing, first with 35 mm film, later in medium format. Digital photography gave me the opportunity to create panoramas. Currently, I'm free to pursue my third career, to explore and to share.
