About me:

Thank you for visiting.

Started visiting DPR somewhere around the time of the reviews of the Olympus C2000 and C2100 UZ. Signed up in 2011.

I have some twenty five plus years of published work as an eLearning developer, graphic designer, Illustrator, cartographer and historiographer.

I received a formal BFA in Graphics (Printmaking) and aside from a pencil, pen or brush, I've had one camera or another in hand over the years and have been pushing pixels around since the early 80s.

To paraphrase advice photographer Norman Parkinson once gave Vogue Creative Director Grace Coddington - never close your eyes, you might miss something that will inspire you.
