God has instilled in all of us a love of beauty. People from all overA portrait of me along the Conestoga River the world, from every nation, language, and culture have that common love of beauty. As photographers, we can capture that beauty and share it with others! I hope you enjoy viewing my images as much as I did creating them.

I grew up and still live among the beautiful farmland and rolling hills of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I have been interested in photography my entire life (starting with a Kodak Brownie box camera) but have only recently gotten more serious with the hobby after my three children have become adults. I am a software engineer by vocation which probably explains why I enjoy the technical aspects of digital photography post processing as much as capturing the images in the first place. I enjoy landscape photography and love to photograph scenes around Lancaster County, especially the Conestoga River.
