I've been a designer and illustrator since college (1969) but have worked also in copywriting, package design, advertising, retail management, small business consulting, Main Street Community Organization and as a novelist.

PC-based design since the Intel 286 processor, c. 1978. I like Canon scanners and cameras as well as their inkjet printers up to 40" wide roll-media.
