Database Geek by day, Musician, Photographer & Occasional Guitar Builder when it counts!
Introduction
I live in the South Puget Sound area of WA state, USA, work for the state as a database guy, have two wonderful children, a loving wife, two dogs and three cats.  I make Telecaster style electric guitars, compose rock and acoustic instrumental music, and take lots of photos.
Bragging rights
I have been almost to the top of Mt. Fuji, but never up Mt. Rainier past 10,000 ft.

+Michael Russell thanks Michael. No, that trail links up to Marmot Pass, just out of frame to the left. Three trails come together at the pass - we hiked up from the East, on the Big Quilcene Trail. The trail south, which you can see in the shot, goes toward Warrior Peak and the Mt. Constance area. We hiked 1/3 mile north from the pass to this viewpoint because I'd been before and knew about the overlook. Great spot!

I rented a Panasonic Lumix 7-14mm F4 super wide zoom for a weekend trip to the Washington DC/Virginia area, knowing we would drive to Shenandoah, and its waterfalls. Nice lens, I think! Next I'll have to try the 9-18 Olympus and compare ...

Long time, no see, again! I busted out the Olympus OM-D today on a short trip to Seattle, and loaded it up with the old, old Nikkor 50mm 1.4 (and fancy adapter. I have not taken many photos lately, and have been a little dissatisfied with the Olympus. But I like the results from today - maybe my issue has been more with the 12-50mm Zuiko lens. Anyway, I strolled through the stream a little and saw many old friends still out there, which is great. +Margot M +Terry Fabre +Erwin Vindl +Francis Gorrez +Natosha Davis and others. Sorry for the direct poke, but I was so glad to see your work today, and plussed some of our always very cool shots!

I keep hoping to see a Hobbit or Elf or something sauntering through the woods on some whimsical journey.
