When I was young, I loved to draw and paint. But when I picked up my first SLR camera, I immediately fell in love with photography, so out went the pencils and in came the film. I have to admit I sometimes still miss film, there was something tangible about it that only comes with years of using it. But like every other photographer, when digital came in with a vengeance, it was time to toss the film in with my pile of paints and pencils!
I grew up in Ohio but have lived in the Puget Sound area of Washington State for 18 years.
