As a quick introduction, let me just state that I am a Christian; a Father, Grandfather and Great-grandfather; a Cold War Veteran and Patriot; a scholar of life; and am always learning.
I have been involved with technology since I was very young, disassembling my toys and putting them back together (my success rate got better with experience). My career in the U.S. Navy gave me a fantastic background in electronics and communication. My civilian communications career broadened my scope of understanding and my knowledge of systems. Later my career developed more along the lines of IT systems, which gave me experience with Internet applications.
Although I do enjoy relaxing with my artwork, over the years as I became busier with technology, the time I spent doing artwork became less and less. But over these last few years, my life has become less hectic and I am re-entering a season of creativity which to me, is very exciting.
Regarding 'Web Presence': As stated on the front page of this website: "I have been a builder of Websites for nearly 30 years. I learned the 'language' of the web back when there were basically two web browsers; Mosaic and Netscape Navigator. I witnessed the advent of Internet Explorer and Opera, and later, Apple's Safari web browser. I have a history with websites. With all of the do-it-yourself options available, I still prefer to build a more tailored web presence for my clients. I currently use content management systems, but I tailor them to each specific purpose."
I also create my own graphics & artwork. From traditional artwork such as sketches, graphite drawings, paintings, and sculptures, I turned to digital art as it became a more viable complement to building websites. I have recently returned to the more traditional forms as well, and hope to awaken those skills.
