Once a sailor, a soldier, a technical translator and lexicographer, and an executive in government and the private sector.
Pressing the button since I began with inexpensive roll film Polaroids and a plastic Diana toy camera in the latter 1960's. I later taught myself how to develop film and make prints in my studio apartment bathroom while I was in the navy in the mid-70's. I was once hired to apprentice as a wedding photographer after I left the navy, but luckily, a real job offer soon came along before any permanent damage could occur.

My military resume, for what it's worth.
