    Biography: Portraitist by day, father and husband by night! Sounds like batman huh? It's been a few months since I joined DPC and with a few challenges under my belt, I don't see myself leaving any time soon.

    On a more serious note, I don't really see myself as much more than avg. I don't feel I have some omnipresence vision that will strike awe in mankind. Seeing the smiles on my customers faces as they view their proofs is more than enough for me.

    I love to argue about anything and everything (see forum posts ;) ). Which made me a natural in debate. I don't have any degrees, I don't have any certificates of qualification and I don't have any letters of recommendation. I have a portfolio, which to me speaks for itself.

    I am not the best, the worst or the most avg. I'm not exciting and I'm not boring. I am how you see me, regardless of who I am. Some of you will love my work, some of you will hate it. I'm not willing to change that if I could. I am willing to continue giving you a reason to decide for yourself and I'm willing to let you do so.

    Love it or hate, just keep looking.

    Thanks for your time,

    An extra special thanks to my wife Saradee for my profile photo.
    Signature: I would rather fail being myself than succeed being everyone else.
