My focus in photographing vintage signs stems from my appreciation for each sign’s uniqueness and the craftsmanship involved in making each sign: each sign truly is a work of art. Also, the fact that weathering changes the appearance of signs, combined with property owners and/or real-estate developers who may not see value in preserving old signs, compels me to continue documenting signage and other roadside sights that still stand today. After all, the appearance of such artifacts may be different tomorrow, that is, if something is even still standing tomorrow. A native Texan, I moved to Houston after living in Austin, Toronto, Southern California, and the Chicago area. The majority of my professional career has involved working in the non-profit sector in marketing, fundraising, and communications roles for the Houston Symphony, University of Houston, and other organizations. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. My work has been shown in galleries in Houston, Fort Worth, Galveston, Round Top, Denver, Pomona, and Vienna (Austria), and featured in the Houston Chronicle and Houston Press and on various Web sites, including Collectors Weekly and the Houston-based real estate blog, Swamplot.com, among others.
