All of them focus on Music, Photography, and Tech – Korg M3 88 Workstation, CF Martin DC15E, Alwarez Guitar, Line6 Pod, JamVox, Wacom Intuos4 Medium (WACOM RULES!!!), Apple iPad, Nikon D3S and D700 with 24-70 2.8. The one that’s missing is the Elinchrom Ranger and Deep throat Octa.. That’s the everlust one. iPod Touch for portfolios, music, and just in case stuff.
Your cellphone/smartphone (make/model):
Verizon Droid (Android 2.1) – Absolutely love it.. Its taken the place of my ipod quickly and I do so much with it. I have a Iphone at the office, usually just sits in a drawer somewhere. (FWIW: NOT A COMMENT ON the apple/droid debate.. Just a preference. I prefer the Droid)
Won't leave the house Without:
My Droid! That thing has all of my stuff on it. I feel naked without it.

Being a guy that has to talk about “The Industry” I have to keep current with a lot of things)
Mac or PC: Both:
Mac Side: 17’’’ MacOSX 3.06GHZ Core2 Duo with 8GB of Ram 500GB Hard drive. 4 Lacie 500GB Triple Interace Drives.
PC Side: Dell M6500 Covet Core i7-920XMExtreme 16Gb RAM, 1Tb Raid0 Hard Drive with Nvidia Quadro FX 3800M CUDA
Laptop or Desktop:
Both. I have another Dell in the office. But the 6500 Covet may as well be a desktop. It’s considered a Desktop Replacement, really.
That’s hard to say. I find myself running through the Creative Suite all the time. I’m the Photoshop Guy that has to know about all of the other apps – so I do a lot of playing. Photoshop/Lightroom would have to be my favorites, followed closely by Premiere. I had always wanted to work on a mini movie. Oh yeah, and I am Tpain.
Technology that you're most looking forward to that hasn't been invented yet?
I’d have to say the flying car. As much as I am afraid of heights.. Flying is one of those things I’d love to do.
What do you wear to work?
Jeans, Sandals, Tshirt. We live in Tampa, FL- and I absolutely positively hate weather above 77 degrees. For as long as I can remember, I always wore a bandanna. There wasn’t a picture you could find with me not wearing one. I just don’t think work would be –THAT- understanding.
“Try Everything. Should you ever fall flat on your face, you are still moving forward.”
What time do you go to bed?
Usually between 12:30am and 1:00am
What time to you wake up?
6:50am – 7:10am on the dot.
What's the first thing you do when you wake up?
I say hello to my daughter Sabine Annabel. She’s 18 months old. Every morning like clockwork she gets up between 6:50 and 7:00am and crawls over my wife Jenn. She puts her hands on my face and says “Dada!!” Then proceeds to give me a big smack on the lips saying “Muah!” . She leans in and cuddles for about 120 seconds Before she tugs at my hand and moves me into the living room to start Sesame Street. She then points to the coffeemaker and says “Taw-teee” reminding me that I’ve only been asleep for a few hours and need to start my Coffee drip. I’m a big coffee drinker.
Describe your perfect day:
My perfect day would be an endless loop of what happens every morning right now. The two things I’ve always wanted to do in my life was be a teacher, and be a father. That morning routine is a constant reminder of both.. And I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I’d probably add to go out and take pictures and come home and noodle on the keyboard.
Behind every frantic man is a wonderful woman. My wife Jenn is the epitomy of that. She’s a very talented Ballerina, WAY techy (She and I used to bond going over Sinosudial crossfades in CoolEdit Pro/Audition) like me, a wonderful mommy, and an incredible rock of support for what I want to do. She knows how much I love teaching and sharing what I can and there isnt a morning she doesn’t look at me, hand me my cup of coffee and say with her eyes “Go Get em.. “ That encouragement is what got me here, and what keeps me here.
