About the Artist:

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
