Artist, vagabond, IPhone photographer, Type Z (zoned in/out), right-wing liberal, wannabe comedian, Cinema junkie, grateful true companion, news and politics hound, collector of found objects, part time grouch, absent grandfather, RV owner, former college instructor (photography), marketing guru, and some much cooler stuff.
