I started adult life as a Cabinet Maker creating three dimensional pieces that often found their way to furniture shows in New York. At age 33 I went to college and started a 30+ year career as a Software Engineer creating computer programs, often referred to as "Black Art" because of their seemingly mysterious workings - their lack of dimension. Now, my past experiences support my artist endeavors where I take my photographs through the digital darkroom (computer skills) to printing and framing (woodworking skills) producing two dimensional images. Creations that portray my perception of a scene and infused with the personal energy expended to bring everything together for Art Collectors to cherish. My immediate efforts are to set up a computer controlled irrigation system to support my wife's gardening aspirations and therefore the reason for joining this forum.
