I started my career in photography as a professional photojournalist in 1979 at the time working with several newspapers and magazines in Southern California. What I loved most about photojournalism was its diversity and over my career I covered professional sports, concerts and travel. As life would have it mine took yet another turn and in 1988 I developed an interest in holistic medicine. I became a professional massage therapist specializing in sports medicine. In 1991 I decided to go to medical school and obtained a medical degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and stared my career as a licensed acupuncture physician. After medical school I moved my practice to northern Idaho for a year before settling in the resort area of Sun Valley, Idaho. I’ve always been an outdoor person and hiking and backpacking the Rockies and fishing the pristine river waters and high altitude lakes offered me a wonderful photographic opportunity. In 2010 I left Sun Valley and I once again found myself on a cruise ship, this time working as an “Acupuncturist at Sea”. For the past seven years I have traveled to 85 countries, which has allowed me to photograph much of the world.

    1. I’m not sure what you mean… I do my best to always be myself…

      I try by posting this travel blog to share the world how I experience the world, how it is seen through my eyes. To maybe help someone decide where they would like to go on vacation, to help them decide what and where on this beautiful planet that they would like to experience and to give them some insight.

      As for being a PR move… I am a photographer but it is not my primary means of income as it once was many years ago. I am an Acupuncture Physician and have been in healthcare hoping to make peoples lives better for the past 31 years.

      As a photographer if someone enjoys a photograph and decides to purchase one for their home or office it is my thought that the image makes them feel good, relive a thought or a memory, to bring them joy. I am certainly not getting rich off of this travel blog and it was never intended to do so…
