Default Couch Potato Extraordinaire

Good Morning!

I am a reasonably proficient user of Adobe DTP products. I majored in photojournalism at the University of Missouri in Columbia in the middle of the last century. Yes, I am a Certified Olde Farte.

My interests in DTP are varied. They range from producing software user manuals to photojournalistic records of our church choir's performances across Europe. The enemy I fight almost daily is dot gain. I never win without editing the photograph. There has to be a more efficient way.

I spent my working life in various U.S. Navy and commercial aircraft cockpits. In Vietnam, I flew A4-E attack aircraft for aircraft carriers operating in the Gulf of Tonkin. I collected all the common "I've-been-there-medals," a Distinguished Flying Cross, and multiple Air Medals, Navy Commendation Medals, and unit citations.

I retired from Continental Airlines just after 9-11 at the the FAA's mandated retirement age. At the time I was flying from the NYC area across the pond to various capitals in Europe in the DC-10 aircraft. Great fun!

Since retirement, I have been studying music composition, recording technology, and vocal performance. Had I realized as a teenager that I had been given a singing voice, I might have never become a pilot.

In summary, I am just the prototypical "Been There, Done That" retired couch potato.
