  • I can claim to slain every dragon I’ve ever met, don’t see any around do you?

Who am I really?  

Well,  I have been married to my fantastic and tolerant wife for 36 years (and counting).  We raised two amazing people who are now young adults.  Our daugther lives LA and works in advertising; our son has a law degree, passed the bar and is in Federal law enforcement.

I retired after 46 years in the software field, starting with operating systems with CDC, test systems software with Amdahl, and system support software as a contractor at NASA.  While there I was the architect for a mass storage system and then the work load software
PBS - Portable Batch System, which I and my team continued to develop at Altair Engineering (the team continues to do so).  My thanks goes out to them for more than 20 years of working (and putting up) with me on that software.  Who would have believed it would last so long and be used around the world by so many sites.

My main hobby is photography.  I consider myself to be an advanced amateur and “specialize” in landscapes.  Stick me in any national park and watch me click away.  Its those all too  rare times when an image comes out of the camera that "jumps out at you" that the all the time and money spent is worth it.  The main purpose of this web site is for me to display photos I have taken, mostly on trips to the scenic wonders that abound in this amazing country of ours.
