Did You Know? I've worked as... an intern at a power plant, an engineer at a medical device manufacturer, a photographer, a photography teacher, a blogger, and as a math teacher.
On Photography... When I began learning photography in 2004, I was a cheapskate who thought I could achieve pro level images if I had a great camera. I soon learned that I was wrong. Then I learned more, and more... I took some photos for friends, and charities, and later for money. Today I only rarely work as a photographer for paying clients. Instead, the photography I do is for myself and my family. It's for the joy of creating the image. And while my photography learning curve has slowed, it continues to this day. Because of this, I know that whatever I grow up to be next, photography will continue to be an important part of the adventure.
I Like... being in nature, hiking, biking (off-road), rollerblading, everything DIY, eating chocolate chip cookies, but also healthy eating, making spreadsheets, and seeing beautiful and interesting things/people through the lens of my camera. I guess I'm some sort of hippie nerd.
