Grew up in the great Pacific Northwest in the green and misty hills of Seattle Washington. After being in a car accident which changed the course of my life, and for occupational therapy, I turned to virtual realities which made my limitations less apparent. While retraining my manual dexterity I discovered I had a knack for taking pictures using the Firestorm viewer in the Second Life environment. Prior to my accident art was my primary way of expressing emotions; the great sadness at that loss was quickly forgotten at the discovery of digital media. There is a rich and vibrant culture happening in virtual reality I plan to document some and hopefully learn more about the people and concepts I encounter.
