I specialize in corporate event, automotive and editorial photography. My photos have appeared on the covers and the internal content of numerous national magazines. My photos have also been used in books, posters, brochures, post cards, tee shirts and more.

I wore out many film cameras before delving deep into digital photography. I post regularly at, my photography blog. Alphatracks is aimed at Sony and Minolta SLR camera users, but I also offer general photography tips and training.

I am available for photographic assignments. Contact me at (704) 678-8882 or 

WordPress Development

I have extensive experience with WordPress, both as a blogging platform and as a content management system. I have installed and maintained dozens of self-hosted WordPress installations on Linux servers. In addition I was responsible for an extensive WordPress portal that entailed installing multiple copies of WordPress on a Windows server for a major Fortune 500 client.

My responsibility included all aspects of the various sites, including configuring Apache, MySQL, PHP and WordPress. I designed and installed themes, researched and installed plugins, made sure everything was backed-up properly, wrote PHP and JavaScript code to meet the client’s needs, trained users and offered WordPress support.

I have a wealth of experience with short codes, custom post types, child-themes and custom function codes.

I feel confident I can handle any aspect of WordPress design, installation or support. If you need WordPress design, maintenance or support, call me at (704) 678-8882

Graphic and Web Design

Over the course of my graphic design career, I have designed books, magazines, trade show displays, tee-shirts, bill-boards, catalogs, brochures and advertisements. I have worked closely with art-directors at major ad agencies, giving me a strong appreciation of design trends, craftsmanship and meeting deadlines.

I spent more than a decade retouching high-resolution images for very demanding art directors and editors, as a result came away with an in-depth understanding of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

After many years of print design, I expanded into web design and development. Although there are many differences between designing for a screen and designing for the printed page, I was able to apply what I learned from my pre-press background to web pages. I have designed and implemented websites for individuals, large corporations, celebrities, manufacturers, small-businesses,  organizations, professionals and  realtors.

I have experience with static HTML pages, Flash animations, dynamic web pages, PHP, HTML5, CCS3, Smart Phone and Tablet applications, JavaScript Frameworks, Shopping Carts, video-tours and streaming media.


I love writing and my non-fiction writing has appeared in hundreds of printed publications, as well as an abundance of online materials. I have written news and sports, as well as features, training, how-to, technical articles, sales copy and interviews.

I have served as a regular columnist for several print magazines and I enjoy interacting with my readers. Working on tight deadlines has taught me how to write quickly and concisely. At the same time I have learned to tailor my copy to the reading-level of my intended audience.

In 2008, I published my first book: Sony Alpha DSLR-A300/A350 Digital Field Guide for Wiley Publishing
