I am the Chief Information Officer for Northland Pioneer College in the beautiful White Mountains of Arizona. When I am not managing their technology, I am involved in one of my many hobbies. I am most passionate about photography, astronomy, and most recently into aerial photography and videography.
I take my camera everywhere I go, as I never know what I am going to encounter. I enjoy taking sunrise, sunset, moon shots, aerials, and anything in-between.
So a quick bio:
First - I am thankful for my mother and father. Without them, and their continuous support and encouragement, there is no telling where or what I would be today.
I have had a diverse career over my 40+ years. From the distinct honor of serving in the United States Marine Corps, in law enforcement as a Deputy Sheriff, and now on to a role in education as a CIO over Technology. Each one of these careers has been a challenge, and each have built upon the other in experiences, influence, life goals, and how I view the world.
I currently hold a Masters in Information Systems Management from Keller School of Management and a Bachelors Degree in Technology Management from DeVry University.
My photography is self taught - leaning on experience, practice, or the Internet for resources.
Here is a quick list of my photography equipment.
