I have had a passion for photography since I was a boy; that led me to an engineering degree in the science. I now work with a company that produces equipment for film, theatrical and architectural lighting designers. It is very exciting for me to combine art and science now on stage. And today that career takes me to Hollywood as well as nearby Broadway NYC. Just updated some of my photos on a recent trip to Southern California.
Well traveled with ancestral roots in the mountains of Switzerland, I have visited several times the original chalet where my grandfather was born. Still some of the country in me from where I grew up in Indiana, but I have lived on a boat in San Diego and spent a good part of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area. For awhile I was working as a consultant in optical technology traveling to Europe frequently and was in Berlin for the several months after the Wall came down. I have made my nest in the gales.
HOME is where the HEART is... and these days that means close to my 12 yr old daughter who lives in the neighborhood of Metro NYC. Yes, family is important to me and if there is a relationship to be developed, I would include you in mine as I would expect to be included in yours. Yet always respectful of appropriate boundaries.
As for recreation, I most enjoy walking in nature, by the river or shore, always close to a body of water. I also play many sports like tennis and volleyball when I get the chance. And I really do chop wood for exercise; that photo was taken outside my home. I support all kinds of performing arts as well with a special interest in modern dance.
I meditate, exercise and consume a healthy diet daily for a well-balanced and fit lifestyle. But I have also been known to party all night on occasion!
