Story
Tagline
Mixing things up with photography, tech, and new media.
Introduction
I'm a photographer with a tech background - Professionally I create photography of events, people, and businesses.  I also write and speak about photography and social media for various audiences.

I'm currently building WP Photographers, a resource for all things at the intersection of WordPress and photography.  If you're a photographer looking to better understand WordPress, or a WordPress blogger/publisher looking to better use photography, WP Photographers can answer your questions.

I'm the author of Alcatraz Views, a book that shares the story of "The Rock" via photos and captions.
