The latest vehicle for unleashing my creativity is pixels on cathode, be it 3d modeling, rendering, animation, packaging design or advertising work. Visual conveyance of thought and message continues for me to be a sacred dictum of sorts. It remains more than just a calling but rather ranks somewhere between pleasure and obsession.
Along the way, I’ve picked up a camera and been able to pursue another of my passions in photographing sporting events. Whether it’s the deliberate rhythms of baseball, the swift back-n-forth of hockey, the warp-speed contact of football or other trials of physical competition, I’ve always found sport to be the most riveting of reality shows and having the chance to cover it up close and tell its story through pictures has proven to be an exciting venture. It’s always a good feeling when you’re rewarded with the money shot after hours of being dogged and laying in the weeds, so to speak, and the moment happens just like you planned it.”
