I recently graduated from Rock Valley College in Rockford Illinois, where I earned an A.A.S. in Web Information Technology. I live in a small town in northern Illinois near Rockford. I became interested in photography while taking a required course for my web degree.
As a child and all through high school I was very much into art, mostly pencil drawing and some painting. I never considered that photography was another form of art. I enjoy taking landscape photos and also occasional wild life shots (mostly on accident).
I like to take walks with my trusty pal Lemmy. Lemmy, (named after Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead) is a yorkie-poo that is full of energy and very much enjoys the walks, probably more than I do. On days when he’s not too excited we take pictures of our surroundings. He really likes to be included in all of my adventures, and is unhappy on the occasions that I need to leave him at home.
