    Some good news, some bad news................

    The bad news is that I had to resign my job as a Clinical Microbiologist due to health reasons. Over the past few months I noticed a marked increase in forgetfullness and an inability to recall recent things. I had both a CT and MRI done and unfortunately, there has been a noticeable atrophy in the white matter in my brain, where my short term memory resides. When you are dealing with people's health, and the decisions you make can have a major impact both on their health and lives, you simply cannot afford to make mistakes because you cannot remember something.

    The good news is that I have decided to now pursue photography professionally full time. Fortunately for me, all the photographic knowledge I have acquired since 1972 resides in a different part of the brain and seems to have remained intact. I am in the process of getting a business license, tax id and a separate business checking account. I have more than enough equipment to run a studio, and will work out of the house and on location until I have enough business built up to afford a separate studio. I am excited to finally be free to do something I truly love. Chapter 1 of a new life book is now open.
