Photography has been a lifelong creative theme for me. I bought my first SLR with paper route money and became obsessed with architectural photography and capturing geometry. That fascination with geometry and form served me well, after much career experimentation I became an aerospace engineer and still work in that field. My camera went into the closet after college, it was a time to be serious and put frivolous things like art and creativity away, and years went by before I realized how wrong I could be.
I come to this as both a mathematician and a story teller. I am fascinated with shape and light and texture, and see them as an appropriate gramar. Adding sensuality into the mix completes the gramar and leads to the story in the image.
