First, let me put this right out front… I’m a color fanatic. I even dream in color, and therefor I guess I qualify as a color geek. Getting color to display and print accurately is not a new challenge for me, it’s been a life-long obsession. For almost five decades my creative career has been focused on accurate color reproduction. I have deep roots in the world of color as a photographer, graphic designer, pre-media specialist, pressman, consultant, software designer/developer, presenter and author.
In 1984, my printing ink and film emulsion world transposed into vectors and pixels. when I saw the Orwellian Mac ad during the Super Bowl, I somehow knew that my twenty-year romance with color was about to grow even deeper. Within the decade I found myself deeply involved with the Mac.
I’ve written numerous feature articles about digital imaging techniques, hardware and software product reviews for many photography, printing industry, and computer trade publications and served as a Contributing Editor to Photo Electronic Imaging (PEI) and Professional Photographer magazines.
I’ve been certified by IDEAlliance as a Color Management Professional in both Fundamentals and Pre-Media categories, and I’m a presenter for IDEAlliance in the area of Color Management for Photography. I enjoy writing, and speaking to groups large and small about color capture and reproduction.
I’m blessed to be married to a wonderful wife (Barbara) and living in Ormond Beach Florida.
