Since moving from Iowa to New England in the late 1960’s, I have worked as a carpenter, an English teacher, a photographer, a documentary filmmaker, and an art dealer. I am now a Professor, and Chair of the Communication Arts Department of Framingham State University, where I have taught since 1988; my Ph.D. is in Communication Studies.

My documentary productions have been screened in venues including the New England Film and Video Festival, Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, and PBS; photographs have been exhibited at the Boston Center for the Arts, and the Institute of Contemporary Art. I am a past member of the English Institute, the Photographic Resource Center, and the Boston Film/Video Foundation.

Currently, I am an Artist Member of the Medici Society (School of the MFA, Boston), the American Association of Woodturners, and the New England Sculptors Association (NESA). My work has been represented at various New England galleries, including the Signature Gallery (Westport, CT), Lacoste Gallery (Concord, MA), and the Fiber Arts Center (Amherst, MA).
