Sarah Eubanks invited me to write a meme. She did not ‘know me from Adam' as she put it when she sent me the invitation, but through some correspondence, we found that we had several things in common. Isn't Active Rain cool?
•1) I have a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) degree majoring in Photography. I am not artistic with my ‘job shots' by any means, but I've been known to pull the car over and take quite a few shots while ‘on the clock' as well as when I'm out camping, downtown, walking the neighborhoods... etc. No matter where I am, I always look like a tourist. I find myself constantly looking through the lens as I go through life and sometimes that makes it hard to be in the moment.
•2) My last career was in Telecommunications as a Software Implementation Expert for several different companies and so I traveled all over the U.S. When the dot.coms went downhill I did some soul searching and realized that I wasn't terribly keen on my job and the competition was fierce and so decided to seek other endeavors.
•3) I am an animal fanatic. I have three quirky dogs, one amazing cat and three (fishy?) fish. I used to actively volunteer at the local Humane Society, but have since been a slouch and now am just on the list to foster dogs.
•4) My significant other, Dave is a drummer which would seem has nothing to do with me, but he jams at the house two or three nights a week with friends, and so it is part of life. This town is filled with some incredible musicians. I go out and see a lot of live music. I am a fan of many genres but have the musical talents of a brick.
•5) I have a very simple life. I love my job. I love my house. I love my city. I love my family. Pretty simple.
I'd like to dedicate the next group of meme's to other Appraisers on Active Rain:
