Since 2004 I have been teaching at Southeastern Community College, mostly Math. I stopped face to face teaching in 2014 and now only teach online. Having recently moved to Pennsylvania I am always looking for opportunities to take pictures at local sports venues. There seem to be an abundance of State Parks which I am now exploring.

I graduated from Valparaiso University in 1966 with a B.S.E.E. degree. I worked for 28 years at General Electric as a Design Engineer and Manager of several groups including assignments in Schenectady, NY, Nashville, TN, Ft. Wayne, IN and Burlington, IA. I then worked as Engineering Systems Manager for Marathon Electric in Wausau, WI for 10 years. After that I "retired" and went to teaching at SCC in Burlington, IA. Two years ago, my wife passed away after a long illness and I am now engaged to be married once this pandemic thing settles down. My fiancé, Carolyn, is also a photographer and member of PSA.
