About Mickey

Mickey is a retired Navy Photographers Mate, Chief Petty Officer, and the Leading Chief of the Navy’s elite Combat Camera Group Pacific.  Mickey’s current focus is the Veterans Portrait Series, which documents veterans’ stories of service. He is focused on our Worlds’ Greatest Generation. The veterans of World War II.

Mickey interviews each Veteran, collecting and writing their service stories, archiving these amazing historic figures and their stories for generations to come. Mickey has collected and displayed images and stories from over 100 warriors that at one point, signed the dotted line when our country needed their sacrifice of service most.

Mickey continues to collect Veterans from all services for the Veterans Portrait Series.  In 2019 the work was displayed at the Palm Beach Photographic Centre Museum from Nov 11, 2019 – to March 1, 2020.

Mickey and the project were in the national spotlight, featured on the Sunday Today show with Harry Smith Today Show Link to YouTube.

In 2022 Mickey has photographed over 25 more WW2 Veterans and will be hosting a print show in San Diego in November with an open house on Veterans Day.
