I was born in Berkeley, CA, am 57 years old. I grew up in nearby El Cerrito and, while I've lived in Oregon and Alaska, I currently live in the hills east of Richmond, CA (really, it's not as bad a place as it's said to be). I've migrated photosharing sites from Zooomr (alias as Slowdncr) to Flickr and now to G+.
I have had the same job (with increased responsibilities) for 34 years. I am twice divorced, but have finally met my match. I have two great kids, 21 and 19, from my 2nd marriage. I've been taking photographs since 1970.
