Not a "Native Californian" but "Naturally Californian" and, finally, a natural man in a natural world.... I have a B.S. in Biology from The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH and an M.S. in Bacteriology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I have been a lifelong photographer with my earliest memory of photography at age 7. I worked in biological and chemical information management with Chemical Abstracts Service and MDL Information Systems. I also worked in software support and customer relationship management with Netscape Communications, Sun Microsystems, and VeriSign.
