Biography


I love taking pictures as one of my special hobbies and seeing the results. I first started photography lessons in High School and learned about how to process black & white pictures. We learned how to develop film negatives and how to use enlargers (old fashion way) to print the pictures. During my last year of high school the photography instructor taught us how to develop pictures from color negatives.

While working for United Airlines I traveled to the Hawaiian islands about 25 plus times. I photographed the islands (Kauai, Big Island, Oahu and Maui) using a Nikon F2 SLR camera with prime lenses. When I got married we traveled to the Tahitian Islands on our Honeymoon. After a few years later we traveled to Australia and New Zealand. We have been back to Hawaii for our 25th Anniversary (Maui 2007) and then Kauai 2008 and the Big Island in 2012. Recently our last trip was in May 2018 back to Oahu after more than 25 years.

Professionally I am a Software Quality Assurance Engineer with many years computer technology experience. My first computer industry job was in IT (formally MIS) and I continued to stay in the field of computers by moving into Technical Support positions in supporting routers and bridges, client/server and web technologies then finally for the last twelve years as QA Engineer for web-based Enterprise applications. I have the last 7 years worked are HPE (PPM, Cloud Service Automation and ArcSight as a QA Engineer). I am now semi-retired.
