I originally enrolled at Carnegie Mellon University as an Art Major back in 1992. It didn’t work out. My idea of art didn’t mesh as well with the department’s as I had hoped and I began to develop other interests. I did graduate from CMU with an Art minor, and while I pursued other careers, I maintained my interest over the years.
Years later I became interested in photography and found that many of my older art skills still apply. In particular the use of composition and lighting. Since that time I have become increasingly interested in further photo projects and have fallen more in love with the camera than I ever was with the pencil, brush, or digital sketch pad (although I still use all of those tools as well).
