I'm a welder by trade but employed for the last 15-20 years doing I.T. work. I'm presently a network admin / help desk support staff member at my current employer. I did a stint in the U.S. Navy back in the mid 1980's - stationed aboard the now retired and turned into a museum - USS Midway CV-41 aircraft carrier. We were forward deployed with the 7th fleet and stationed in Yokosuka, Japan. I went into the Navy to pursue machine and engineering trades (I learned to weld while in high school) but wound up working in the photo lab as a US Navy Photographers Mate. I loved living in Japan and I really enjoyed working in the photo lab... I would love to go back to Japan someday.
I'm presently living in south central upstate N.Y. in a small town called Berkshire. It is (more or less) between Ithaca, Owego and Cortland. I work in Vernon, NY. I shoot a lot of the local school and youth sports programs, as well as other sports that I enjoy that are not affiliated with the school programs.
