I am a retired high-technology R&D executive. After a thirty-four year career that culminated in executive leadership positions with AT&T Bell Laboratories (Holmdel, New Jersey) and Cisco Systems (San Jose, California), I have turned my attention from developing and scaling the Internet to capturing the natural beauty of the North Coast of California with my camera and developing the images in the digital darkroom.
I live on the rugged coast of Sonoma County. This is an area endowed with unique natural beauty, solitude and light that is softened by the presence of mist from the Pacific Ocean. My images of both grand and intimate landscapes seek to convey the splendor and serenity of my surroundings. See my Artist’s Statement.
I am originally from New England and spent much of my life on the east coast. Having moved to California in mid-life, I was anxious to learn more about the natural environment of coastal Northern California once I retired. I became a winter-season docent at Point Reyes National Seashore in the winter of 2009 – 2010 and have completed six winters of volunteer service. I’ve found the program a great way both to motivate my learning about the natural environment of the North Coast while also helping visitors appreciate the unique place.
