    Biography: Professional Data Warehouse Specialist by day, (very) Un-Professional Photographer, Musician and Writer at every other opportunity.

    My love of photography was instilled at a young age, through constant slide shows from my Mother's Father and my own. Making music is my deepest artistic passion, but as I get older I've adopted the photography that grabbed my brother at an early age. Any early progress I made was advanced by gleaning off his years of professional experience, and it continues to this day as I sponge off of the marvelous work of those around me. That absorbing continues at this place, where I've had the great fortune to get to know and collaborate with some incredible artists.
