I'm eclectic. I went to college and studied theatrical lighting, then went back and learned computer science. I've been a lighting tech, a mutual fund salesperson, a programmer for a junk mail company, and an engineer at Motorola and General Dynamics. I've worked on everything from Grateful Dead concerts to military satellite communication systems.
And in all of that, I've been taking pictures. From my first - a Polaroid Swinger 20 - to my current Nikon DSLR, from seventh-grade black and white processing to a $99 digital camera that took 640x480 pixel photos (a miracle in 2002), from Instamatics to point-and-shoots to my cheapo cell phone, taking photos is just something that comes naturally.
It's been far too long since I changed careers. So I got serious about photography, started taking classes, joining clubs, reading magazines, attending Photoshop World. I'm on a four-year, self-guided course to go pro. After (early!) retirement, photography shall be my full-time job. I'm just getting started, but I hope you like what you see and will come back occasionally to see my latest images.
