Thank you for taking the time to come to my blog and check out what my passion areas are and a little more about my perspective.
First let me start with Jerry Seinfeld famously said “I can’t act” “I’m not an actor” … so I am going to start with I cannot write and I am not a writer… classically trained that is.
If you came here to read a classically written blog with wonderful grammar and punctuation then I will tell you that you are starting at the wrong place. If you came here to read my at times…. dry, fun, cleaver, curmudgeonly, smart, dedicated, witty, or even dare I say cynical view of photography, food, technology and other things I’m interested in then enjoy.
A little about me – I am a Husband and Father first although I learn everyday in that area. Been in the software/hardware/IT industry for over 20 years during that time I have worked with some of the largest software and hardware companies in the world as well as supporting Fortune 10 customers so when you ask if I know of what I spoke of I bet there is something on sometime in your life that my work has touched. I do not say this to be arrogant most to put into context that when I talk about technology I’m not some guy in his basement with a camcorder and a laptop. I have actually implemented this into businesses that rely on it.
My passion areas include many things that come and go over time – but the contents are Photography, Ham Radio, Cooking, BBQ Judging and of course Computers and Technology. I have tried my hands at many things such as being a private pilot and certified at sailing but some things come and go for various reason in your life. Many of my friends call me a renaissance man… I am not sure that’s true, but I do believe that once you stop learning, trying and having fun… you stop.
People tell me you cannot be successful at blogging if you do not specialize at one small, micro, nano niche. Well, if that is what it takes to be successful at this game then I never will be – life is too short to narrow your focus that much on ONE thing….
