I'm a compulsive photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area.  

Although trained in the traditional dark room in the late 80s, I didn't start photographing seriously until after I was forced to retire from my career as an electronic dance music DJ and producer due to ear damage.  

I guess what they say is true; when one door closes another one opens.

It's so much fun.

When not photographing, I spend my time assisting students as a community college counselor.
