Technologist, Photographer, Virtual Assistant, Wordpress Fend, Mental Musician, Micro Blogger, Consultant, Animal Lover
I fell in lust with technology and photography many years ago, starting with a Commodore VIC20 with a tape drive, 300 baud modems and a Minolta 201 SLR camera. Computers satisfied my left brain and photography my right brain. I operated an electronic bulletin board service equipped with FidoNET, was on the beta test team for the first anti-virus software in the world, and played with pin-hole cameras with my home-made short wave blasting in the background. I lived through AOL, Prodigy, CompuServe, and used the internet before it was even open to the public. I blogged before it was called blogging. As a kid my mom let me take everything I can get my hands on apart, my dad gave me my own acetylene torch, multimeter, cutting pliers and screwdriver set - my brother gave me his 35mm camera. We practically lived in our family corner grocery store, a great place to learn about people. In my former Law Enforcement job, I learned there is bad in every good guy and good in every bad guy. Everything boiled down to what I am today - a mix of many things, a man of many interests - a technician in academia and a consultant to a few organizations.
