Original art "Lighthouse" created by me in Metatools Bryce 3

Welcome to my corner of the Internet. I'm a database administrator specializing in environmental information systems, a part time writer of science fiction and fantasy, painter of oriental style landscapes, creator of computer generated art, and hold a second degree black belt in hapkido. I live near San Francisco.

Martial Arts Pictures and Links

Martial arts are a very important part of my life. I began studying Hapkido nearly ten years ago and through it developed heightened self discipline and confidence. Hapkido is a blend of Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu and Judo and for outstanding training in a friendly environment, try The Korean Martial Arts Center in San Francisco.


A link to my most ambitious venture, the fantasy novel The Wizards Of Llandwellyn as well as several short stories and non-fiction articles on martial arts and the Internet

Oriental Landscape Painting

I've long been drawn to the Chinese landscapes of the Sung and Yuan Dynasties (about 1000 - 1300 AD). I have had training in painting in this style, and have added scans of some of my original paintings. Travelling Through Mountains and Streams is one of the most famous works of the Sung era. For more information and images National Palace Museum Taiwan has probably the finest collection in the world.

Computer Art

A more recent venture is designing computer generated landscapes in Metatool's Bryce2 and the newest version, Bryce3D. This amazing piece of software allows one to quickly create almost photorealistic, surrealistic, or fanciful images.

This homepage developed the old fashioned way with HTML code because I didn't get around to finishing it before my trial copy of Hot Dog timed out.
