I’ve been a web developer for nearly 20 years, starting in Ye Olde Netscape 4 days, where I laid out pages using nested and re-nested tables and lots of spacer images, up to now, where we have good browser support for CSS based layout, good semantic HTML, and nifty downloadable fonts. I love playing with CSS.
I’ve had a love of photography ever since my Uncle Tom got me darkroom equipment when I was twelve years old. I started with an Instamatic camera, and later, my father’s old Kodak rangefinder cameras. I graduated to a pair of Pentax SLRs, first a K-1000 and later an LX. I ran a lot of film through those cameras. I started shooting digital in 2002, and completed the transition over the next few years. Now, I shoot with a Nikon DSLR and a Canon point and shoot. I spent years working in a photo lab, and that made me very picky about how my pictures came out. I still enjoy post processing work in Aperture and Photoshop. All the photography on this site, unless otherwise credited, is mine.
I’m what you could call an active bookworm. I’ve always loved to read, and growing up, that was my main pastime; I can still get lost in a book or on the web. Over the years, though, I’ve added less sedentary pursuits, like motorcycling, bicycling, diving, cross-country skiing, and most recently, kayaking. Often, I’ve combined these other pursuits with photography.
