Welcome to My Site
Each of us carry cerebral multimedia content throughout out lives. Some internalize this data while others embrace the flow of memories and express them in artistic and creative ways. As a child of Generation D, I have embraced the digital domain and use technology to express the disjointed and sometimes bizarre nature of mortality. The web is my creative outlet where I can express my thoughts and images to other cognizant beings. Through this expression I have come to the self-realization that my life cannot be summarized in a linear fashion. My life can best be described as celestial points of light that may be connected in creative ways to form constellations of consciousness. While some may see patterns others will merely see darkness. By sharing these lights and experiences, others may learn of me that my spirit may live on.
Each person that you meet and each time you communicate with someone you give them an opportunity to form an opinion about you. Some will use this opportunity to try and categorize you and neatly place you in a box comparing you with others who have similar views. Unfortunately that doesn't work well with me. I tend to be a nonconformist in my thoughts and actions making it difficult or impossible to categorize. I am the proverbial square peg seeking round holes to prove that I don't fit. This is not intentional it just seems to work out that way.
Those closest to me always say I am hard to understand or get to know. This web site is my attempt to facilitate those who would like to understand who I am and why I am. The journey will not be easy nor will it be linear. Many will travel along the path but few will finish it. Those that do will hopefully find answers to their questions and perhaps give them insight into themselves that they had not anticipated. I invite you to walk with me as we journey through our mortal existence and perhaps we will find common ground and become friends.
In this age of computers and multimedia, it seems archaic to think a simple piece of paper with words printed on it could convey all the love we have for family and friends during the holiday season. For this reason we have begun to create a brief video Christmas card for those we love.
Here you will find each of those videos along with a special video of Trina's gift in 2013. I hope you enjoy them.
If you would like to receive an email link to our electronic Christmas cards going forward, please feel free to contact me.

My love affair with photography began when I was in high school. I was fascinated with all types of cameras and the artistic freedom it provided. I had been involved with art since early childhood. My parents both encouraged me sending me to several art classes and seminars. In many cases it was intimidating since I would be the only child in a room of adult artists. No matter, I was doing something I enjoyed. My problem was always that I would get bored with a specific medium. I jumped from charcoal to pencil to ink to paint (both acrylic and oil). I just oculd not seem to find one area that I wanted to focus on. Looking back I think part of my problem was the constant internal struggle I had between my artistic side and my analytical side.
