I worked for 30 years as a defense consultant and military historian before taking early retirement and becoming a high school history and ESOL teacher. I started traveling to historic sites with my parents and I've been taking photos of my travels since I was 8 years old. I've been a part-time freelance photographer (mainly sports) for 10 years and have coached soccer teams for 20 years.
