Hello! I’m a professional photographer with 40 years of photographing and 20+ years of teaching photography in higher education, private workshops and youth programs. Colorado Digital Photography Education: My passion is passing along my photography abilities to students. I hold a degree in Photojournalism, a Colorado Teaching Certificate, a Career Technical Equivalency (for teaching college-level classes) and continue to expand my post-secondary education through higher education workshops, professional development and courses on teaching methods.

I’ve served as an Adobe Campus Leader and have earned the following Adobe EDU certifications:

  • Adobe Campus Leader
  • Adobe Digital Photography Educator
  • Adobe Photojournalism
  • Adobe Youth Voices

I currently teach for Colorado Mountain College’s Isaacson School For New Media and the Community College of Denver on the Auraria Campus. Courses taught include:

  • Basic Digital Photography (ART139 & PHO120)
  • Multimedia Graphic Design (Adobe CS software) (MGD124)
  • Photojournalism

Here is a selection of photography from current and former students! I’m proud of what many have accomplished as they’ve entered the field professionally and continue to mentor them.
