Shuttlecraft at sunset
STS1 Sunset Photo Opportunity

STS1 at Sunset Taken at Cape Canaveral 12 hours before launch. This was a special event provided to the press. A small group was taken out to the gantry for a photo opportunity. It was amazing to watch the Shuttle roll out on the platform. I think the top speed was three miles an hour. It was a beautiful evening in Florida. The night before, the launch was scrubbed due to wind. This was taken with an Olympus OM10 using Kodak Ektachome 64 with a 50mm lens. For this project, I also had 500mm and a 200mm lenses. This image was scanned from an 11×14 picture that was created in 1978.

Light Year Rehearsal, Venice CA 1978

This picture was taken in one shot using an Olympus OM10, Olympus 200 zoom and kodak ektachrome 64 film. Using a long exposure I was able to zoom stop three times during the exposure. Jon was playing while I took the photo. The location was the bands rehersal studio and was lit by a single 100watt bulb and an open door to provide the additional light.

Originally, this was a pretty darn boring post. Kinda like... Well I won't go there. Perhaps its still on the robotic side but... I could say I like music. Safe, generic and non-comittal. Or, I could say that I've been having a blast tuning up my old guitars, getting blisters on my fingers and turning the amp up past 2. Amazaing what a little overdrive and a half pressed wahwah pedal can do for a sound. Get that cool "Money for Nothin" vibe happening. I get a real kick out of reading old Sci Fi. Reading Asimov's vision about the future is really entertaining now. When he wrote much of the material, the items that were futuristic were day to day tools I used in the early part of my career. Microfiche and the like. I also remember that upstart Microsoft and MS DOS...and can you say Lotus 123? So maybe this is a little better than "I like to read and play music". My career is focused on Team Leadership and Technology. Both share the attributes of continual growth and education. Currently, I manage a team of 4 programmers as direct reports. I've been in this role since 08/2007. Prior to that, I was the team lead (on site) for integration with the customer. Customers ranged from local government to manufacturing and medical. Teams ranged in size from one to six additional team members. On the other side is technology. I've been keeping current with .net technologies focusing on C# and Sharepoint (2007/2010). Specialties Team Building and Management Technical Staff Recruiting Microsoft Visual Studio 7 through 2010 (VB.NET and C#.NET) Microsoft SQL Server 6.5-2008R2 (DTS, TSQL, SSIS, SSAS, and SSRS ) SharePoint 2010 (Office Integration, InfoPath, Site Management and planning) Windows Server 2008 R2 AD DS PowerShell Techology analysis Puchasng and working with vendors Microsoft licensing management and compliance Business Systems Analysis Traning plans Mentoring Training coordination.
