Story
Introduction
Through my adult live I have worn many hats.

Most of the time has been spent in information technology as a manager.

I have developed several web sites, including my own.

I have spent some time in both account management of a gigantic accounts and in sales.

Currently I am networking like crazy. It took me way to long to realize how important it is for everyone.

My links on this page tell much of the story best.

Probably my favorite hobby at this point in my life is photography.  I enjoy and practice many different styles of photography including landscapes, nature in general, candid people shots, architectural, abstract, infrared, HDR and many others.  I like observing other people's photos in general but if I'm being honest I can't stand all the hokey filters recently made popular by Instagram.  If the photo isn't interesting without a filter then for me it just isn't interesting and moves into the annoying category when a hokey filter is applied to it.  I am certainly not above applying extreme processing to a photo but if it can be simply applied with the click of a button it isn't art any more than applying someone else's style sheet to a word document is literature.

If I blocked you ... sorry.  It is probably a result of a photo related community.  There are some things that I have already seen enough of so when I see them I check out the person's profile to see if it is an anomaly.  If it isn't then I will block the person so I don't have to see their:  intentionally skewed horizons (that's just lazy), cat photos, overused instagram filters on snapshot, animated gifs, reposting of other people's work, internet jokes, anything hipster, etc.  I get it if you don't like my stuff and block me.  That's life.

Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America when I had just turned 13 years old. Shook Muhammed Ali's GIGANTIC hand when I was in college. Shook Henry Kissenger's hand once. Bungee jumped in Colorado in the mid '80s. Took a lesson and did a couple of 10m ski jumps in the '90s. Did the luge run and bobsled run at Lake Placid.

A great Barnes & Noble as far as they go. Overall I rarely go to book stores anymore as I prefer to read on an e-reader than to take up more bookshelf space but if you DO want paper this is a good one.

This is a pretty big Best Buy with a lot of empty space. I will always go to the one in Secaucus if practical as their selection is generally better in my experience.

Far better sporting goods store than Sports Authority ... assuming that is why Sports Authority is going away. It was a surprise to me that Dick's even has a reasonably good selection of camping gear. It's not Campmor or REI but still pretty good and competitive.

Dim depressing lighting even by Home Depot standards.

Meh ... I don't really understand what the raves are about Trader Joes. Seems more a hipster thing to do than a reality.

REI is awesome. They don't have a huge selection but the store is well lit, staff is generally (see exception below) very knowledgeable and helpful and the prices are pretty much in line with their competition. What I DON'T like is that they insist on poking holes in every bit of clothing with the tracking tags. I get it but no way am I buying rain gear from them with a hole in it. THEN when I tried to explain it to the staff they not only wouldn't accept my right not to buy rain gear with artificial holes punched into it, they kept nagging me and trying to almost bully me into buying it. Needless to say they lost that sale to a store that didn't punch holes in rain gear.

It's a fantastic place if you like slow service, don't care if you get what you ordered, don't mind that the speaker system and receipt systems are screwed up and the prices are probably double what the meal is actually worth.
