Over many years I have occasionally done water color paintings for friends, and attempts at artistic photography.
I got serious in 2008 with purchase of a Nikon D40X with Tamron lens, eventually got a D90 and it fell into a river. Current camera Nikon D300s with Tamron 18-250 aspherical lens.
I photograph almost everything, many interests. I find myself moving more and more in direction of abstract works, minimalism, but I love color and complexity.
I also do woodworking and have built 2 violas and a violin bow, with some tutelage.
I love classical music, books on spirituality and philosophy , especially the work of Avatar Adi Da (check out www.DaPlastique.com !), wine, neuropsychology, Neurofeedback, ice hockey (Buffalo Sabres !).
