I have learned, throughout my life, that the best things in life are achieved through the hardest work. I found an amazing woman and have made it work for close to eleven years. Eight of which we have been married. It isn't always easy but the payoff is immeasurable. Two amazing boys, a dog and two cats, I count my blessings every day. On the physical side, i'm not the man I used to be. I turn 50 in 2016 and that number alone is a little intimidating. I've had my fair share of setbacks but none have knocked me out. I fight every day to keep father time at bay. I know eventually he will catch up, but am sure that is quite a ways away. On the career side, now that has been a bit harder.
Photography has always been my passion. I have always wondered how I could turn it into something that could make me a living. I started my adult work life back in 1994. I've been at it for over twenty years full time. Over that time I have had successes and failures. I have learned more than I ever thought was possible. I haven't made it big but i've made a living. Never down and out. I keep plugging along. Lately I have decided that it isn't enough to just plug along. This website, this blog and my podcast are examples of some of the changes I have been making. They may not be perfect but at least i'm doing something. I won't be that person that sits back and complains about what could have been or where I should be. I'm going to be the person that does something about it. If I fail, so be it, at least I tried.
So why am I telling you all this? First off to thank you for being a part of it. For helping me to find my dream. For clicking on the links, reading/watching the content and for just being there. Giving you a little peak behind the armor or the curtain or whatever metaphor works for you.
I look to the horizon and see what is possible. I'll be putting more energy into my photography and my videography skills as well as sharing how I am doing all of this. If it helps one person or gives any of you joy or makes you think, than I have done what I came here to do.
Thank you for being a part of the journey.
Now, back to work!
