hold on to your butts
I first picked up my mom's Pentax K1000 when I was a bright-eyed 11 year old jerk. I loaded black and white film into it every day after school and disappeared into the woods. All I've cared about since is visuals.
I'm mostly self taught and I studied design at the Art Institute...online...in the middle of the night...while changing diapers...and working a full time video gig during the day.
I'm surrounded by women who have me constantly reenacting Mulan and on a good day I get to be the dragon. You can spot my Wife and I plus our 4 daughters out in the rain discussing time travel theories.
