05/16/04: I am in my fifties and an American physician with a specialty in internal medicine and a 25+ year history as a photographer. I'm also a musician since childhood and an enthusiastic composer of original music with a bias towards jazz music. If you would like to see some more of my photos and/or listen to some of my original music, please visit my personal home page listed above. My website also contains some articles I've written, interviews I've done, and has detail about my medical practice.
With the bio information stated, I must say that Photo.net astounds me. What a resource for those of us trying to improve our skills and view the work of others! To be able to have a truly international audience of skilled photographers react to an uploaded photo within minutes is an incredible phenomenon. Photo.net has allowed me to form constructive relationships with excellent photographers from all the world. This is a tremendous use of the power of the internet. Thanks to all of you that are helping me improve my photographic skills and are providing so much visual stimulation and pleasure from your photos.

I'm enjoying adding my recorded live music and my original musical compositions to some of my most recent images. If you're interested in listening to the music, then just click on the play button. I hope you like the combo of my music with my images. While jazz is my favorite style, I plan to add a variety of more live and recorded original music of mine to selected future images, including the genres of hip hop, fusion, jazz, classical, gospel, popular, Caribbean, and blues styles. As with photography styles, I have a wide ranging interest and appreciate variety in music. Thanks for looking at my images and both looking at and listening to those with music and video. To see and listen to my photography folder with my music accompaniment, click H E R E.
