Thanks much for taking the time in visiting my space in this virtual planet – though I can assure I am NOT virtual myself nor do look that serious in the worst of times, mind you 🙂 In this a place I hope to share my humble works in photography & music and possibly some genuine / short stories from life mostly for laughs.
I am someone quite passionate about photography in all its forms; Wildlife, Nature, Macro, Artistic, Modern etc.. Though I have spent a career in IT spanning over 15 years I am now totally focused on this form of art enjoying every aspect of it including things like color, texture, light, framing and the like; plenty of learning, but mostly plenty of fun. You will find the link to my photography site by clicking the Photography menu on this site.
Music is another area of deep passion for me for as long as I can remember. Though I’ve had literally no musical education whatsoever for reasons beyond my control – at least initially – this did not prevent me from playing the Trumpet and more recently the Flugelhorn, Cornet which I absolutely adore and the French Horn which I absolutely love and feel it has plenty more to give rather than the limited spectrum it’s used for in the classical genre so I use it where I can in my brass cover works and in the very near future my simple brass compositions. I would enthusiastically dive into any opportunity to connect/work with other professional musicians on projects. I also love the art of conducting and suspect there may be some talent there too, but that’s another story altogether.
I was lucky enough to have lived in a few countries during much of my childhood to my teen years from former Yugoslavia to Ethiopia to Turkey which has pretty much shaped me to the core in terms of my political & social beliefs and the reason why I consider travel/interaction with other cultures (not merely for tourism) as key – particularly at an early age – to learn and develop a realistic context for our place in the multicultural world we live in. Right wing politics is about people who have NOT experienced a similar opportunity and thus attempt to lead us towards an unrealistic/unsustainable future merely for narrow political objectives that serve a few for a while…but I digress.
Anyway, I hope you like this new site of mine and please do share your thoughts on content so we can make it as interesting and relevant to you as possible. Take care 🙂
