Here is a little information about myself. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I grew up loving the outdoors and the visual arts. My youthful plan was to become an architect but the visual arts as applied to advertising became my career path. I love to travel and soon after I graduated from college in graphic design I ventured off alone to Europe to travel and sketch. Upon returning from Europe with new creative juices flowing I pursued a masters degree in illustration. During my professional career I enjoyed the challenges of learning the computer that enabled me to use software art tools thereby creating vector art, image pixel manipulation, and video production.

My wife Chris and I live in the foothills of the Sierra in a town started during the California gold rush called Auburn. During our travels Chris is a big help in filming the videos. Our two sons and their wives live in the Bay Area along with cherished grandchildren from both families.
