Statement

 

I learned Arabic while attending school in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia, and French at the American Community School in Beirut. The Middle Eastern cultures are part of my educational fabric. While in grammar school, Look Magazine was selected as my first workplace and documenting life and technology has provided a steady income.

I started photographing dragsters in Santa Ana at 15 when the quarter-mile top speed was 135 and all the cars at Indy were powered by 4-bangers.  It never entered my mind I could make Fine Art Photos until I heard Ansel Adams speak at El Camino College.  Before that Paul Furber at Peterson Photographic had drilled the Zone System into my head.  I got use to carrying a tripod everywhere, using a shutter release, developing Ilford ASA 50 exposed 10 to 30 seconds.

I am a spoken-word performer in one of the L.A. poetry tribes with five thin books of poetry published.  Hosted slams at Midnight Special, poetry events. Co-founder Redondo Poets poetry workshop.

A few years ago, Poetic Diversity appointed me Artist in Residence and published some of my 20 year old b&w photos.  Another door opened.
