I ran away from college in the 1970s to join the carnival and sideshow. Since then I have performed at many different shows from Coney Island to the South Pacific as a sword swallower and all around carny. While working I developed a desire to photograph my fellow performers both at work and at play this desire soon grew to include the people and places we visited.
Although I returned to college and completed my degree in psychology and photography I still perform from time to time as my passion and my heart will always be with the sideshow and the friends I made along the way both living and departed.

I am a proud member of The Sword Swallowers Association International and The International Independent Showmen's Association.
