I've done just about everything under the sun creatively. I've been a writer, media professional, web designer, graphic designer, multimedia designer, post production specialist, etc. Now I'm turning my attention to photography and videography.
Single father of two boys with way too much time on my hands. I spend part of it creating neat stuff like cool photos and short video documentaries.
Too many to list them all, but here's a start: HTML5, post-production video editing, photoshop mastery and a good eye for things people don't normally notice.
Here's where things get a bit more technical.

Art just isn't art, unless you show it off to the world.
I shoot scenic landscape photography whenever the urge and shot strikes me, whether it's with my cellphone, point and shoot or Canon professional DSLR. Mother Nature provides the best subject models on Earth.
Sometimes everything really is Black and White. Traditional Black and White film is gone, but portraits are here to stay, thanks to Photoshop and Lightroom.
It takes a fast camer and even faster eye to catch athletes in action. Luckily for me, I have both.
Nobody's perfect. Nor or pictures a lot of the times. So a little photo editing magic goes a long ways.
If you want to be a sports hero, I can make it happen, or at least in print. I have background in Photoshop editing magic since version 2.5.
