About Me

Nature/Wildlife, Landscape photography based in Worcester, MA.

A dad/stepdad to awesome kids, IT architect, runner, ultra-runner and triathlete. Never thought I’d run longer than 26.2 but now am addicted to ultra’s. This is my world through photos and my thoughts.

My kids are my everything. My son takes after me in the theater and my daughter has my competitive and athletic side. Both are wonderful and I miss them when I’m not with them.

My blog is all about family, photography, motivation, humor, running, biking, swimming and spending time with @knitahollis.

Runner

I run. I’ve been running all my life and I run for the run of it. I’m not super fast but faster than most but most of all I run for the enjoyment.

Photographer

I take photographs. I’ve been taking photos all my life but really started in the early 80’s with my cool 35mm. I think I have some talent here.

Developer

For just over 20 years I have been developing websites. Crazy to think it has been that long but it all started with my first site milesweb.

I have run a lot in the last 40+ years and though I’m a little older and a bit heavier I’m still able to go out and run relatively fast. The last race I did was a 5k and ran at 8:20 pace which isn’t bad for an old guy.
