A former journalist and public relations consultant, I live on the Mendocino Coast in Northern California. Mendocino is an artist colony and eco-tourism destination where sea lions out-number people. One of my main hobbies is photography. My work is sold in several stores on the Mendocino Coast and individual photographs have been selected for juried shows. I am currently learning to improve my work with help from landscape photography great Clinton Smith, who studied and worked with Ansel Adams for six years and has 30 years experience photography America.
