I'm a retired stay-at-home-dad and grandfather.
I did some artwork as a kid, but pretty much stopped in my twenties. After a long, long career in computers, I've finally been able to scratch the itch again. So here I am!
I use Carrara 8 Pro and Daz Studio for composition and rendering, and Fireworks and Photoshop for postwork and textures. I'm more of a storyteller than an artist, and my gallery certainly reflects this LOL! I like creating (and viewing) scenes that tell a story -- or strongly suggest one.
The Aranée series is based on a story idea I created - I have a complete story outline and character synopsis to keep things coherent. Who knows, maybe I will publish this one someday?
I live in Sacramento, California USA with my wife and teenage son. I have four grown kids already out of the house, two extremely energetic grandkids, two spoiled-rotten cats. I'm active in my church running our food pantry which feeds about 5,000 people a month.
You folks here at Renderosity have been SO wonderful to this old dude. PLEASE drop me a line or comment on my gallery. Say what needs to be said, good or bad: Your words energize me and keep me growing.

Old health issues still dogging me though.
I've been stuck in the creative doldrums for ages, absolutely no real inspiration for months now, whether writing or artwork.
I have high hopes I can get back in here on a more consistent basis, but it doesn't look like it is going to be anytime soon.
Many thanks for people who have inquired about me via sitemail or email. I am sorry if I have been slow to respond, but you have no idea how much your concern and words have cheered me. God has indeed blessed me to have so many wonderful friends here.
