About Me

In my first life, I was a high school teacher. In my second, I went into sales. My third life, sports photography, began in 2005. I covered professional, college and high school sports in the Bay Area for fifteen years. I worked for Icon Sports Media, the Mercury News Group, American International Media, Viacom and AOL.

I was the staff photographer for Rugby Magazine and the tournament photographer for the USA Sevens in its first few years. I retired in 2016 and hit the road in an RV. I ended up on the Central Coast in 2020.

‘Numina’ is Carl Jung’s word for the subtle experiences we have in life that seem to indicate something bigger, something magical. A moment can fill a lifetime, a picture can indeed speak a thousand words.
