Long description:
I have been interested in photography my whole life. My dad shot B&W film, processed the film and prints. Later he shot lots color transparencies mostly of nature. My neighbor let me use his darkroom when I was in high school. I took art and photo classes in college while studying mechanical engineering.

I worked as a machinist, Peace Corp volunteer in Chile for three years, coppersmith, solar thermal water heating and radiant floor system technician and designer, HVAC testing and balancing tech, CNC machinist, AutoCAD drafter, mechanical designer for commercial aircraft avionics systems, writing aircraft Illustrated Parts Catalogs, and briefly, as a singing cowboy in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for which I was paid in silver dollars.

I live in a RUSTIC cabin near Mount Hood, Oregon. Flickr is one of my main social interactions besides our five string band (actually there are 27 strings in all). I play the stand-up bass, log my own firewood, have a small metalworking shop and keep very busy staying comfortable which takes a lot of work up here in a rain forest at 1800 feet/550 meters.
