About the Author

Born and raised in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (known as the Mon Valley) I learned to use a Kodak 110 instamatic camera and a journal as an eighteen year old U.S. Marine in Vietnam. After traveling along a cold lonely road for 27 years to survive grief, I found myself navigating around and through new potholes in 2020. The entire world is now in grief with the Road to Survive, dangerous and unhealthy. At this time more than at any other, we all need a map to guide us through this uncertain journey. I still believe in the “KISS” method for writing and taking pictures. Keep it simple and short. My only upgrade has been to a 35mm camera and a fountain pen.
