A website of writing and photography


This home page is the portal to:

  • portfolio of images from my photography hobby.

  • An  archive of the photo-illustrated newsletters that I send to family and friends.

  • A group of videos that I have made in recent years as part of a new hobby and for the website I designed and manage for the Stone Church of Willow Glen in San Jose, California.

  • A collection of some of the stories I wrote as a sports writer for the San Jose Mercury News and the stories behind them.
