My biggest passion is for MUSIC! I have been singing since I was 5 years old and picked up a guitar when I was 13.  I performed in coffeehouses  during college and sing with friends here in Colorado at least once a year at a special "Night of Acoustic Music" in Boulder. I enjoy  listening to music by Mat Kearney, James Taylor, David Wilcox, BRYNDLE (Karla Bonoff, Wendy Waldman, Kenny Edwards, & Andrew Gold), Marc Cohn, Enya, Dan Fogelberg, John Gorka, and many others in the  'folk-pop-country' category

My other 'passion' is PHOTOGRAPHY!

I currently own both the Nikon D750 DSLR (purchased in November of 2014) and  the Nikon D300(purchased in February of 2008). The D750 is an AWESOME 24 megapixel  FX (Full Frame Sensor) prosumer DSLR and I will be posting photos later from upcoming trips to  Palm Springs and NYC  that I'll be taking with my D750. 

My favorite lens is the AF-S  NIKKOR 24-135mm f/4G VR telezoom lens. This lens has great wide-angle and zoom capabilities so I rarely take it off the camera body. I also have the AF NIKKOR 50mm  f/1.8D lens (great 'prime' lens with superior sharpness)

But probably the BEST lenses I have right now are the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G IF-ED Wide zoom professional glass and the AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f2.8G IF-ED close-up lens for awesome macro work!

In late April of 2015, I added the AF-S Zoom-NIKKOR 70-200mm f4G IF-ED tele zoom lens after trading in my older 70-200mm f2.8. The f4 is much lighter and a bit smaller but still very sharp.

My accessory flash is the Nikon SB-700 AF Speedlight.
