BIOGRAPHY
I started taking pictures at the turn of the millennium, and joined photo.net shortly after. Shooting was, and still is, a way to solidify memories from far places I happened to visit, some outdoor pursuit or, most likely, the two at once.

My evolving collection of pictures is here, although I am still hopeless in recovering a six-year backlog in scanning negatives...what might have motivated my recent move to digital.
