Entry Description

A series of images looking at various aspects of a Silicon Valley office persona. Looking at the office lobby, break room, cubicle cluster, meeting room, office chairs, and views outside.


This series is trying to capture the sameness and drudgery of office life in the high technology world of the Silicon Valley. A look at the office lobby, cubicle farm, break room, office chairs, and a look outside (in color). In the break room you see the common items like a microwave, refrigerator, soda machines and the ominous clock letting you know when you need to get back to work.

About Photographer

I’ve been playing with photography since grade school. The advent of digital cameras and the need to develop a few hobbies got me back into photography in a big way. I also have been taking classes with Dick Dischler at Keeble and Shuchat. This has propelled me into the more creative aspects of photography. I have the advantage of witnessing the vast technological growth from within Silicon Valley and have found digital photography a perfect match for using my creative and analytical talents for visual expression. My professional life is as a technology consultant with over 25 years experience analyzing technology industries and markets. My focus includes the semiconductor industry, semiconductor markets, semiconductor equipment manufacturers and EDA firms. Today I serve as the president of D-Side Advisors - an independent research and strategic consulting firm. Previously I was an associate director with the research company, Dataquest, and I was a principal in KPMG’s high tech consulting practice. On the operating side, I was director of corporate development at Acurex Corporation, with the charter to develop their acquisition strategy. My degrees include a M.B.A., from the Anderson School of Management, UCLA. and a bachelor’s degree, Summa Cum Laude, from Arizona State University with an emphasis on Quantitative Business Analysis
