Hobbies

Photography

Shooting on a Nikon D700 and D7000 camera body, I particularly enjoy doing landscape and motorsports photography though I have been known to shoot a model or two in my day as well as weddings and corporate events.

Motorsports

An avid collector of Japanese sports cars, my current collection includes a ’93 Nissan 300ZX, ’93 Toyota MR-2 Turbo and a ’13 Nissan NISMO 370Z among others. More than just a collector I am also an avid fan of the IRL and IMSA racing series and often shoot those races for Down Shift Magazine.

Travel

Known far and wide for our awesome road trips, my wife Laura and I are often out exploring the south-eastern United States one back-road at a time. Ill content to limit our wanderings to just the U.S. we also enjoy traveling through Canada, Great Britain and Europe. Next up, Australia?

Entitled Millenial Can’t Live in San Francisco On Yelp Wages

I don’t know if I am sympathetic or apathetic to this young woman. At 10 years her senior I’d be lying if this article didn’t make me roll my eyes on multiple occasions. But…this girl writes quite well and makes some very valid points as well. On the other hand boohoo, go find a better […]
