Jeffrey grew up in Illinois where he has been a lifelong resident in various towns and cities. He attended college at Eastern Illinois University where he obtained degrees in Psychology and Sociology.

In 2002, he retired from a 25 year career as an Administrator for the Illinois Department of Corrections. Early retirement opened a bright new world of travel and exploration. His wanderlust brought about a burgeoning passion for photography.

Jeffrey's approach to photography combines digital manipulation of light, reflections, colors and shadows.  His works have been displayed in Southwest Florida and Illinois art galleries.
