About the Artist

Formally trained in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Fine Art (left + right brained they say), by day (and nights) I specify and design software for non-profits to help them increase their program capacity and efficiency through better use of technology.

About the Artist

Formally trained in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Fine Art (left + right brained they say), by day (and nights) I specify and design software for non-profits to help them increase their program capacity and efficiency through better use of technology. Whew! Yes, I try to be a do-gooder and make an impact in whatever small way I can. Which means that by vacation and weekends I take photographs, which is my current passion.

I am also a ceramic artist, woodworker, welder, and I work with an amazing, passionate group of artists called Five Ton Crane, to create large-scale community art as well. In my "spare time" which is hard to come by, I am an avid knitter, rock climber, and gardener.

I hope my love of the outdoors comes through in my Nature Photography – living in the Bay Area in California make me one of the most fortunate people in the world. The nature right outside my door is breathtaking, my garden bountiful year-round, and the weather wonderful.
