About Photographer

I love peering through a viewfinder and trying to capture the amazing subtleties of light and shadow. Technology runs my life. Photography brings things back into perspective. It forces me to enjoy the things around me and makes me focus on the intricate details and complex nature of this world. My professional career has landed me into a position as a researcher with a focus on software engineering and advanced rendering technologies. But my heart lies with traditional film and digital photography. I love rolling vistas, and natural wildlife.
