Story
Tagline
I work on security. My team and I work our butts off to make Google safe. I also take photos.
Introduction
If you like my photos, you can check out my online portfolio right here!

I tend to use my Google+ stream to talk about photography, random political thoughts, social commentary, good recipes, and interacting with anyone and everyone.

I don't tend to talk much about security here. :-)

I love meeting new folks, so reach out and say hi.


Bragging rights
Lived on both coasts. Shoots with both Canon and Nikon. And of those things, we all know which is the better two. :-)

I was visiting Albuquerque on a business trip and after my meetings were over I wanted to go take some photos. Research online showed that the Elena Gallegos Picnic Area offered great views of the city. I drove up and was shooting clouds when from the north east a giant thunderstorm moved in and over the city. I saw lightning bolts and was determined to get a shot with one in it. I took almost 1000 photos hoping for one that would work. Boom, 1 ...

It's now impossible to tell which links on CNN.com are for actual news and which are just click bait. Well done CNN, you've become an internet portal... useless.

A composite... the plane is in the Smithsonian. The photo was taken while on approach to Heathrow a couple of years ago.  To think that the plane I was in when I took this photo wasn't even designed when the plane in the photo was flying.

I saw the picture before I read the information and thought, "well, they're going down with all the engines out like that".

The food here is amazing. The tomato and mozzarella salad is totally amazing. The tomatoes are incredibly sweet and the cheese is delectable. The orange and caramel crepes are phenomenal. Highly recommended just expect to wait a while between courses.
