Who the Heck is this Looknsee?


A little about myself...

I live in downtown Portland, Oregon.  I am not a professional photographer; photography is just a hobby for me.  Past & present jobs include:
  • Bus Driver
  • Dish Washer
  • Fireman
  • Teacher
  • Psychologist
  • Project Manager
  • Photographer
  • Software Engineer
  • Music Publisher
  • Landlord
  • Property Developer
  • Investor

The jobs listed like this are my current jobs.

I didn't like being a professional photographer. I had to please my clients rather than follow my own muse, and I found that at the end of the work week, I had no energy left for my own work.

In April, 2001, I moved from near San Jose, California to a newly remodeled Victorian house in downtown Portland, Oregon.  In October, 2002, I was laid off from my engineering job (after being there for 23 years!), and I decided not to replace that job -- hopefully, I can live off of my music publishing business until the mortgages for the rental units are paid off.  Being semi-unemployed at my age (I was born in 1953) is a bit of a shock, but fortunately I've prepared myself for this.  And the bad side -- I do worry about finances some, but on the good side, every day is Saturday.

I now spend my days puttering around.  I try to get to the gym three times a week, I cook at home more, and I watch too much television.  I also have the energy for one to three photographic sittings per month.

The music publishing is fairly interesting. With my sister, I own about 200 old rock'n'roll songs from the early 1960s. These songs include

  • Let's Twist Again
  • Gravy (for my Mashed Potatoes)
  • Bristol Stomp
  • Don't Hang Up
  • The Mess Around
  • South Street
  • Twistin' U.S.A.
  • The Wah Watusi

If I did the HTML correctly, you should be listening to a song
written by my father and of the same era as my songs.  For a
big bonus, name the song.  Hint:  it was a number #1 hit,
recorded by some guy named Elvis Presley.

Some of My Favorite Sayings (that I made up):

  • All dishes can benefit from the addition of raisins.

  • If you don't like a job, don't get good at it.

  • I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

  • Don't show a photographer anything you don't want to be photographed.

  • Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes the bear eats you.  (From my high school math teacher)

  • If you spend all you earn, you'll work until you die.

  • Just because the price is reasonable, that doesn't mean I can afford it.


Some of My Crazy Ideas That Just Might Work:

  • Pepperoni pizza scented perfume.


More Than You Need To Know About My Love Life:

  • Claire was a lover who would never want me to see her naked, even though she was lovely.  It was mostly okay -- her dad owned a big lingerie manufacturing company, and she had plenty of ensembles.  Being intimate with Claire was like unwrapping a present on Christmas morning.
