"My goal: is to put a clear mental image of what I see through my lens into the minds of my audience. I can connect them to feel what I'm feeling. I use my camera to communicate my consciousness photographically. I talk photography; I breathe photography.
My greatest accomplishment so far was graduating from Columbia College while working full-time. My second greatest accomplishment was following in the steps of Milbert O. Brown, and Bob Black, when I became the leader of the most innovative photography organization in the world- CAAAP aka The Chicago Alliance of African American Photoraphers."
