I have been a member of the photographic community for over 25 years, beginning in the days of 35mm film. Photography has been my passion since I was a teenager.
My hobby developed into a career, and I ended up working for more than 15 years in the photo speciality retail sector. I really enjoyed the face to face interaction with a wide range of amateur, hobby and professional photography customers over the years.
Following that, I spent 8 years in the corporate sector. My primary work focus was related to new product testing of digital cameras and accessories, conducting competitive comparisons and performing market research, as well as developing sales, marketing and promotional communications materials.
As an avid traveller, I have visited many countries around the world. I like to experience new places, and meet new friends, while on vacation with my wife and two children.
Currently I live in Toronto, Canada.
