Original art "Lighthouse" created by me in Bryce

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.

Computer Art 

A more recent venture is designing computer generated art in Corel's Bryce, including the newest version Bryce5. This amazing piece of software allows one to quickly create almost photorealistic, surrealistic, or fanciful images. I have recently begun enhancing these works through MetaCreation's Poser and Painter 5.5.  I've split my work into two sections, Landscapes and Science Fiction/Fantasy.

* New Works added December 24, 2002 to Landscapes Series*

Martial Arts Pictures and Links

Martial arts are a very important part of my life. I began studying Hapkido fifteen 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 safe, supportive environment, try The Korean Martial Arts Center in San Francisco.

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.  For historical information and images the National Palace Museum Taiwan has probably the finest collection in the world.  Other sites with excellent information and examples are:

China on Site

Art of Chinese Brush Painting

And a very small selection of my Original Paintings

Environmental Information Links   

My job involves managing the STORET water quality data systems for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These links go to useful environmental information and organizations.

Information Center for the Environment

National Resources Defense Council

Sierra Club

Techie Stuff

I've developed several software packages with Microsoft's Visual Basic. These links are to some excellent sources of software and help for Visual Basic and other software.

Sorry, but no one from Antarctica has visited yet.

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.
