I've been into photography since my first few years of college. It started as a byproduct of doing an astronomy degree and gradually grew out from there. I've spent a great deal of time working with imaging systems all the way form spectrometers, astronomical CCD systems to your run-of-the-mill digital SLRs. I've imaged supernovae in distant galaxies, binary asteroids as they whizzed by our little planet, a few brides at weddings, some ballet dancers, numerous landscapes, and some birds that like to hang out by my porch.
I'm a fairly shy person and the camera gives me an excuse to engage other people on a level I feel comfortable with.
Currently I do some photography professionally and do some systems administration, programming. In the past I’ve done research astronomy, some engineering and high performance computing. I wear a lot of hats.
I firmly believe in an open culture, therefore almost everything I do is licensed under the Creative Commons.
