    I have read your posts on other
    forums or somewhere else on the
    Internet. I am impressed with your
    website. What program did you use
    to create it?

    ah...didn't use anything fancy...just Dreamweaver....but the layout is pretty simple..mostly using tables to format everything...

    i worked as a graphic designer for about 6 years before doing photography so i picked up a few tricks here and there

    Nice site (and ride)! I know this is kind of OT, but how did you get into photography?
    College degree. Good job. Big house. We all make mistakes.

    well...it has been a round about route to photography.....i studied literature in college....wrote for some dotcoms after graduation...picked up design while at the dotcoms...left and worked for a design firm doing movie websites....left that job and did inhouse design for a national law firm....started playing with stock photography and found that photography was more interesting to me now than design....so i started freelancing for different publications and left the law firm about 8 months ago....whew...

    so i like to keep it fluid and try to follow my bliss where ever it leads....it may not always fill the pockets but i am happier now...

    Kudos to you. I've heard LA has horrible public transport and I know the bicycle isn't really heard of down there.
