My deep appreciation of the natural world and my interest in
technology has played a meaningful role in my life since early childhood
and throughout my career. When moving to Arizona in 2004, my passions in astronomy,
art and technology were all realized in one endeavor – astrophotography.
My images of our universe are my expression of the beauty and
wonder of deep space. By combining technology and science, I am able to capture
and develop those objects creating . . .
the Art & Science of Deep Space Imaging
I hope my images will provoke questions, especially from
children, so that they may get some insight into the beautiful and
awe-inspiring objects that await discovery and are just beyond our eye’s grasp
in our star-studded Milky Way, and beyond.
The appeal of astrophotography is multi-faceted. I enjoy
camping out under moonless and cloudless skies in remote locations while
viewing and photographing deep space. The technical challenges and complexity
of capturing very faint objects appeals to my engineering interests and
And, finally, after the fieldwork, using specialized software, the
digital data are refined and enhanced by processing to produce artistically inspired
