My career in the art of "images" began in Radiology, after which I earned a Ph.D. in English/Creative Writing. Photography was included in my master's degree coursework, and my dissertation includes a mix of poems and photographs in the creative section. I live in Lafayette, Louisiana, where the culture is rich and rife with imagery. I am the official Production Photographer for Festival International de Louisiane, and I've photographed a plethora of other local events. My camera captures most everything, from our gang of cats at home to our travels abroad. My photos appear in several publications, and I did the cover photography for my poetry book, *Ragbag,* published by Nous-zot press.
