I am a retired photographer living in Beirut, Lebanon, and Washington, D.C., USA.  I am a septuagenarian in my eighth decade of life.  Once upon a time, I was a commercial photographer.  I specialized in creating high quality, innovative images of a company’s executives, its employees, and facilities.  In addition, I focused on architecture and interior photography.  Now, I am just a photographer - a retired photographer.  I photograph for myself and for my love of photography.

I like what Aaron Siskind said, “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.  What you have caught on film (or digitally now) is captured forever…It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”  The people and things in my images never age or change as we get older. They are timeless.

For me, photography is about seeing the world, about being present in the world.  Really, it’s about being alive in the moment in the fullest sense of the word.
