I was an avid photographer in the 60's & 70's, with Leica cameras and my own darkroom as my creative outlet. As a cash-starved college electrical engineering student, I sold all my equipment in order to finish school. Then job and family took first position in my life. My career started with designing high-technology aerospace electronics and I retired as a turnaround CEO and Mergers & Acquisitions executive. Now, with an empty nest and some free time, the photography bug has bitten me, once again.
With the latest technology digital equipment and software, I am now happily engaging my visual world, every chance I get. I find that capturing life in pictures allows me to better appreciate the amazing beauty we are surrounded by. Photography just seems to add another dimension, as well as acuity, to to my perceptive world.
I also do very limited, select commercial-corporate photography projects, in addition to teaching photography & Photoshop classes to various photography groups.
