    About Me
    Born in Ohio at a very early age. "Third-culture kid" who has worked on both coasts as a computer geek and technical writer/editor, and now run my own business as a luthier (guitar designer/builder), drum builder and artisan.

    Maybe there's time to get back to photography, so I'm trying to find a camera I can love as much as my deceased (R.I.P.) Spotmatic. It's fast becoming the K-01.

    Update 12-15: Gave my white K-x with the 18-55 kit lens to my son, who needed a decent camera for
    Djembe orchestra, animal rescue, chess, fine art, leather craft, travel
    Luthier (guitar builder), and professional writer
