He’s calling it the College Bound Bar because he hopes to make it to college from his earnings and help other kids with … Read more »

Mission Peace in Vietnam: Part 1

Thursday, Jan. 19th 2012

In Vietnam, children who are born with congenital deformities, or children who become handicapped because of illness such as polio, are ostracized, not allowed to attend school, nor are they able to work as adults. These children are truly condemned. With surgery, not only are they able to walk, but they become assimilated into their communities where they can be productive members of society. Mission … Read more »

When I became a professional photographer years ago, my goal was to be an artist who gives back to the community. Over the years, I have been steadfast with my belief that the more you give back, the more rooted you are in the community in which you live; everyone benefits, and I have been able to be true to myself, my art, and my … Read more »

My Community – StoneBridge School, Napa, CA

Thursday, May. 13th 2010

As a young boy I attended a very strict boarding school for boys – while my education was certainly academically sound, the atmosphere was stern and lacked an appreciation for the creative.
