I dont have a good photo of myself. What photographer does? This is one of me working at the computer.
Ok, here it is. I was born in Florida, raised in Pennsylvania, lived in South Georgia (did you know there are only 3 last names there?), and now am in Missouri. I started out as a kid working for a photographer. Mostly lugging a lot of equipment around and developing film and pushing prints through the huge drum dryer.
Second job was working for my aunt in Florida. She was a commercial artist. Did a lot of cut and paste (the manual way).
I have worked as a commercial artist or draftsman almost all my life. I have tried to have my own business a few times, but found it too much. I am not good at sales, and Im too quick to tell someone "Go kiss a cows butt".
I have a Daughter and a Grandson that I never hear from. I am on my second marriage. I have a sweet Wife. She is sweet at home, but you dont want to meet her at work. She is a district manager for a pay-day-loan company.
Up until lately, photography has been out of reach for me to do as a hobby. Now that everything has gone digital, I have once again gotten back into photography as a hobby. My other hobbies are fishing and woodworking.
Hmmm... Who do I want to pick on... NoSpamz4Me! Your it!

Well, I've never been much for being in the spotlight. But here goes.
My name is Tim. My friends call me Timmy!!!(it's a South Park reference). I'll be 42 in July. Happily single, currently living in Minnesota, and working in the I/T industry at a nuke facility. I've been a lot of things up to this point. Farm hand, sheet rocker, framer, laborer, soldier, mechanic, printer, and even worked in the health food industry for a brief period.
I'm sort of a loner. I hang out with a very small group of people, but they're some of the best you'll ever meet. I enjoy drinking to excess at times I like loud music. I'm a frustrated guitar/ bass player. I love to hop on the bike and just ride. I've been told I'm funny. At least once I get to know you anyway.
I've gone through kind of a black period over the past 4 years or so. Lost several friends and family members. Death, pain, and misery suck. It's amazing how deep and dark the hole is that this stuff can knock you into. That's one of the reasons I picked up a camera. Trying to find the beauty in things again. It's working. Life is good
Anyway, that's me in a nutshell. A sad happy frustrated guitar bass playing picture taking nuclear I/T biker! The picture Posted here is from 2004. I took off on a solo trip for 4 days on the bike, and ended up in the Black Hills. Good times!!
And as for who is thrust into the spotlight next? Let's go with JRSlater8

Now it's only fair to tag the originator, so waynegilbert Tag, your it!
