Welcome to my photo sharing web presence at Smugmug.

I am a self-professed computer "geek" and amateur photographer. Although my career is in the Information Technology field as an IT Program Manager and Program Analyst, my other love is photography. I learned some of my photography skills while in high school, photographing pretty girls and developing my own black & white and color film and learning to process pictures in the darkroom. I gained skills taking pictures in a studio setting of models while also shooting action photos of various outdoor activities in Arizona.

Recently, my computer skills and my hobby of photography have been resurrected in the form of digital photography along with post-processing in Adobe Photoshop. As an avid user and member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), I no longer need to mix chemicals and use stop bath, preferring the digital photo darkroom contained within Photoshop. Photoshop allows for infinitely more versatility and promotes the use of my untapped creative potential. 

Feel free to leave comments on the photos or galleries to let me know what you think of the photographs.
