Your Bio

I'm a 51 year old who lives in Las Vegas with my partner Allen. We have lived here since 1995 and been married since 1993. We are both theatrical stage managers. I was a Stage Manager onboard Holland America's Eurodam new build when I got some great Baltics pics as well as Disney Cruise Line's Dream and Wonder. I also put a new cast on the NCL Spirit and sailed New Orleans to Barcelona in April 2012.
I am the photographer of the family. I went from a Nikon N50 to Nikon N70 which I love as a 35mm camera and I have now gone to digital with a Panasonic FZ20. After 10 years the FZ20 died and I have just discovered the joys of the FZ200. Thanks for taking the time to check out my site!

DREAM JOB = Being paid to travel and taking pictures!
