    Born in Detroit. Dad was a Firefighter. Still live here. Growing up, literally everyone in my multicultural neighborhood was a genius, so I had to try harder 'cause I wasn't. But I could draw better than anyone else. So, I went on to study design and fine art painting.

    That Art background was my "in" to Advertising. Started in the mat room and worked my way up to being an Executive Creative Director of a $350+ million office of Young & Rubicam during the 80s and 90s. Had to travel a lot all over the world, so I took a Leica M with me as my portable creativity.

    My candid B&W street work caught the eye of art directors, designers and writers who asked me to shoot their weddings the same way. It snowballed from there, and I still do weddings and shoot them all over the country as well as the Detroit area

    Professional Photography is now my second full time career.
    wow detroit, I just got back from there photographing abandoned places, we went for days it was beautiful there..

    and I saw your comment on mentors, I wish I would have had one in this stuff, but reality is the way it is, there is nothing really like mentorship though..

    thanks

    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Similar story but I boomeranged. Born in San Diego (3rd generation), grad school in Pasadena, postdoc in San Francisco, then back down to Claremont, CA for a faculty position, then back to Pasadena and now west LA after a career change.

    A prefecture in Japan is similar to a state in the US. In the prefecture I live in there is only 2 places that sell Guinness on tap. One is in the city I live in. $8 for a pint of Guinness.

    I have never seen anyone into high-quality single malt scotch like the Japanese. There are a couple of bars in my town that have obscure, old, single malts that taste like they were gifts hand-delivered personally by the gods.

    I never really appreciated sake until I was offered "secret" sake. Like everywhere in the world, bootlegging is alive and well in Japan, too. I'm told 'natural' sake is illegal, but it is oh so gooooood!!!!!!!!!!! And it has a higher alcohol content (20-30%+), unlike store-bought sake that is rice wine.
