A few things I enjoy besides work and family are: creative outlets, worthy causes, and other activities to keep my brain busy, heart full, and soul satisfied. There’s my micro-poetry at Haikumages, instant photography at PolaProjects, digital and other film photography at REMAGES, and all other things photographic (in the broadest sense) at Cameras+Films.
OHOS is the abbreviation for my OverHerd+OverScene blog and related feeds documenting people, places, events, scenarios, street art and graffiti. OHOS was about “things heard over the herd and scenes we’ve seen” as both news and entertainment. The original idea was to curate photographs and videos including my own work plus submissions from others, but it ended up just being my work, so the OHOS blog was rolled into my main photography blog at REMAGES.
WALKABOUT – I am a proud alum of the Walkabout Program, formerly located in Yorktown Heights, NY, which was launched in 1978, and ran for 37 years. Also proud to have participated in launching the new version of the program as Walkabout Education in 2018. Their first new school — the Walkabout Bronx High School — launched in September of 2020.
I am also a co-founder and board member of the Walkabout Alumni Association (aka “WAA” or @walkaboutalumni), which provides resources, forums, networking, gatherings, events, community and support services for graduates of the original and future Walkabout program(s) and school(s).
