My wife and I moved up to Bothell, WA from the SF Bay Area in June 2006 after living in California my whole life. We're loving it up here.


I'm a "Sr. UI Engineer" (aka Sr. Web Developer) and I telecommute full time. I'm 32 and drive a 350Z.


I got into digital photography in 2001, got a Canon G3, upgraded to a 350D in 2005, 40D in 2007 and now a 5D Mark II in 2009. I've been bit by both the lens bug and the Strobist bug.
