Welcome and thank you. I enjoy meeting people and I like brainstorming ideas with my friends. I start new projects continually. My camera is always by my side.
My career specialty has been finding and pursuing opportunities as an entrepreneur and business owner. Photography, invention and design have always been high on my list of favorite personal interests. Exploring the world as an avid adventure traveler has taken me to more than 130 countries, and has given me many rich experiences and fond memories. For this, I will be eternally grateful.
FOR THE GEAR HEADS and anyone else who is curious, my current camera is a Canon 5DII, usually mounted with my 24-70mm 2.8 zoom lens. I have a 70-200 2.8 IS that's a heavy monster to lug around and remains in it's protective case too much. You may see some more outdoor modeling photos with this beautiful lens shortly. Or maybe not. I loved the image quality of my 85mm 1.2 but the autofocus was so darn slow and inaccurate that I sold it in frustration. This is typical of my restlessness.
My formative years in photography began in college with my beloved Pentax MX, 24mm, 50mm and 135mm fast prime lenses. My film of choice at that time was Kodachrome 64 color slide film. Digital has become so wonderfully advanced that I can't see a reason for ever shooting film again.
I'm an Internet and computer junkie. My addiction is hopeless. Life is sweet.
