For the longest time, this was just a list of equipment I own (which is still below, btw). However, I realized that makes me seem like a gear head. Now, I am into equipment, but more because one has to have the right tools to do the job. And when it comes to photography, the "job" is to be creative and to produce art. I don't know if what I do is art but I try.


By day, I work at a university. By night, I am getting my MBA. On weekends, I'm often a wedding photographer or doing portraits. Somewhere in there I squeeze in photography for my own interests, and time with my wife and two cats. Friends stop by now and then, too, thankfully, to keep all of us sane.
