I am an IT professional by training with over 25 years experience in public and private sector IT. I've had a passion for photography all my life and started a side business doing it professionally in 2003. I'm a member, moderator or owner at multiple photo communities. I'm also owner and editor of Travel Photographers Network. I've traveled mostly inside the United States, but hope to do more foreign travel in the coming years. I'm married with no kids. My wife is also in the technology field. This photograph was taken at Winterthur Estate in Delaware in September 2009. It is my personal favorite self-portrait.
