About me:

After the closing of my three generation old family photography studio in 1997 I changed careers and became an IT professional and manage server/storage and virtualization for a large not for profit organization. I continue to make money shooting events for a newspaper and work through a small agency primarily as an assistant and providing high-end Photoshop/Lightroom “pixel peeking” for prepress and weddings.
