It's been a while since I was last on DA.  Today I brought myself online as a means to try and distract myself.  What only a few people know is that in 2009, I served the US Army in Afghanistan, and was almost killed a few times over.  As a result, explosions and I are not on the best of terms.  As the week of July 4th is upon us, the constant explosions outside of my house play royal hell upon my nerves and upon my brain.  It forces me to look for ways to distract myself, and my art is one such outlet.  I also use LARP, and Nature to help me with my various coping methods, but with all of the fireworks going on from noon until 2-3 in the morning for the last 3 days, and today I know will be worse yet as the fireworks have been going off since I woke up 8 hours ago at 6am, I am forced to try and find a way to stay sane.  But what is sane? sanity has eluded me every year since I returned to the United States.  As such there will probably be more than a few photo manipulations, as I attempt to find ways to distract my mind and my brain.

United States
I am a hobbyist Photographer and digital artist. I am the father of three wonderful children, Dylan, Aden, and Skye which also happens to be my models more often than not. I currently live in North East Iowa, and am always looking for someone that might be willing to model for me. My favorite form of photography is nature, but my health prevents me from hiking any more.
