This would be my 32nd DMCP, started as security in the parking structure in Royal Oak when Michael Lary had the festival. I'm the last involved member from the original days. I've been photographing MCP for about 20 years along with my other responsibilities. I've moved from being responsibility from being security for the entertainers to being primarily photographer on sight during the festival (w/ a myriad of other jobs). I'm the head photographer for the National Women's Martial Arts Federation and I've been a photo archivist for Puppeteers of America since 1983. My day job was a Special Education Teacher and Registered Art Therapist for 40 years; retired 5 years ago.
