I was born in Germany in 1954, moved to the US in 1980. Lived mostly in the San Francisco Bay Area and now in Santa Cruz. My son has been riding mountain bikes for a long time and I was taking pictures of him jumping and riding trails. I have been interested in photography for a long time and with the development of the the modern day digital cameras to shoot HD video it followed naturally to make videos as well. This art form is a lot of fun and I love to learn more about.
