Current Term • 4/12 thru 4/15
My wife, Sharon, and I moved to Monterey from Southern California
five years ago. Currently, I am employed as a full time Physician
Assistant at a local hospital emergency department. I joined the
Center for Photographic Art as a member two years ago. Soon after
that, I began volunteering as a docent. My involvement with CPA
grew as I began helping out with other events such as the auction.
I really enjoyed my volunteer work and I also enjoyed working with
other volunteers at CPA. In April of this year I accepted an invitation
to become a member of the CPA Board of Trustees.
My interest in photography started when I became the photographer
for my high school yearbook. Photography has always been a great
hobby for me. For years I shot with film. Then in 2008, Sharon and I
took a trip to Alaska where I realized that I was the only person on the
trip shooting film. After discussing the merits of digital photography
with another photographer, I became a convert to the digital side of
the medium. That singular change in course has caused my interest
in photography to become even greater.
