I was born in Manitowoc County, WI and graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a B.S. degree in Arts & Graphics. During the Vietnam War, I was drafted and served in the Army Security Agency at the 7th RRFS at Udorn & Ubon - Thailand, Vint Hill Farms - VA and Karamursel - Turkey. After 4 years of service, I was honorably discharged from the Army as a Sp5. After I left military service, I remained interested in the graphic arts (mainly photograpy) and became an apprenticed photographer to a prominent professional photgrapher in Manitowoc. After earning my Journeymanship in the trade of commercial and portrait photography, I struck out on my own trying to garner whatever side jobs I could get. I soon realized that I needed a brick and motar presence - a real studio.
My wife and I purchased a photography studio in central PA and operated a successful portrait and commercial photography business for over twenty years. After we adopted a special needs daughter, I joined the staff of photograpers at the largest research lab at Penn State to get (and afford) health care for her. For five years I both operated our business and worked full time at PSU which took its toll on my family. I eventually closed down our studio to work solely at PSU. I soon was migrated from photography to developing and maintaining the lab's websites as their webmaster. In this position, I learned to design and maintain content on the Internet. I've been doing this for over 25 years and thoroughly enjoy this type of work..
