Born in lower SoCal, crawled around the US a few years following my itinerant farm working Stepparents.
When I graduated H/S early, my guardians suggested joining the USN to see the world, it sounded like fun.
I complied. But all I saw were a few brown, green, and cold places, mostly it was just wet, deep and a pretty blue color.
I was volunteered, to learn how to work on Jets, non conventional mad boom things, and " Training Films ".
This was all before pocket computers were invented, so I had to go to the nearest Library which at the time happened
to be the U of C at Berkeley, and search through thin slices of pressed wood for up to date information. In researching
the history, theory, and best practices of analog image capture, I discovered a lifelong predilection for the Fine Arts.
I have acquired many skills, and am forever grateful for the opportunities and mentorship encountered along the way.
