My Social Network Connections
By his very nature man is a social creature. Since the beginning of time he has attempted to communicate with others. Early forms of communication attempted to express man's observation of events going around him. This message evolved over time and became an opportunity not only to describe his own live but to interact with others to gain an understanding of what their experiences were.

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.
Diary of a Diehard Baseball Blog
When the Arizona Diamondbacks were awarded a Major League Baseball franchise on March 9, 1995 I took that as an omen that I was destined to follow this team. After all, what other explanation could there possibly be for the team to be unveiled on my birthday? Two days later in the driving rain I stood downtown at then America West Arena and waited to put $50 down for a season ticket that would not be available for 3 years. They had not even broken ground on a stadium yet and I already had a deposit on season tickets.
2009 AYSO Tournament Soccer
At the conclusion of the fall soccer season Dakota decided that he wanted to try out for the AYSO tournament team that plays in the spring. The competition was extremely fierce but ultimately he came away making this all-star team. The boys are very talented and the coaches are extremely good. The tournaments go from the end of December through May meaning we will be spending most every free moment we have at the soccer fields either for practice or games. With so many of our firends and family not in the Phoenix/Chandler area we decided to take pictures to help everyone feel a part of Dakota's life. An on-line photo album has been created for Dakota's Newcastle Magpies's tournament soccer games.
