Ben has suddenly started drawing things with intent, like his big brother. This is his rendering of "the beach."

Computer programmer with a photography fetish
Introduction
I am probably best known as a photographer here, but professionally I am a software development manager. I rarely if ever post about work.

I am the father of a brilliantly smart, funny, and amazing little boy named Sam, who is two years old now, a beautiful baby boy named Ben, and husband to a brilliant and beautiful woman named Heather. I post a lot about my experiences as a father, husband, and the joys of living with a new baby. I am 43 years old, but I am constantly amazed at the new ways I have come to see the world in the last few years.

My passion for photography began in my mid-twenties and quickly became all-consuming. I like to try many types of photography, but I am mostly known for my artistic nude work. I don't post those here on Google+ due to Google's anti-nudity content policy, but I post a little bit of everything else I shoot. I am especially fond of small details, macros, and abstract photography.

Photography is a journey for me, and I still have a lot to learn, so please feel free to give me constructive criticism on the photos I post here even when I don't specifically ask for it. Honest critique is always appreciated. I have a thick skin and an open mind, so don't hold back.
