I've spent half my life doing analytical chemistry in labs, including developing new methods of analysis at two companies. Sometimes I need to reject all that rigidity and I choose to play with cameras. I prefer real film and a chemical darkroom. It lets me compensate for a complete lack of any art training or experience with plenty of laboratory experience.

I currently live in the plains of Colorado
Interests
I didn't want to give status updates on the move--it was a cursed enough process without jinxing myself. For months all I could find were very distressed foreclosures or new construction, either very cheaply built or out of my price range. Found a new development under construction and an offer on a pile of 2x4s. Finally took possession today, nearly three months of delays later.

I had them rough in for a darkroom sink in the basement. Hopefully I'll have things set up in a couple of months. Then I'll need to relearn how to do it, it's been a decade.

I start  moving tomorrow. All I have now is a carry-on bag of clothes and an inflatable mattress.
