Among other things I'm a photographer, astronomer, physicist, mechanic, programmer and sys admin located in Boone, North Carolina. I've spent a great deal of time working with imaging systems all the way form spectrometers, astronomical CCD systems to your run-of-the-mill digital SLRs and rangefinders. I've been published here and there, mostly locally and hold two degrees in physics for whatever that's worth.
My photographic interests lean towards the editorial, but I do occasional landscape work as well.
I firmly believe in being open and sharing information, therefore almost everything I do is licensed under the Creative Commons.
