My book, MicroCreativity: Basic Training, a 30 Day Plan, was written to help people improve their personal creativity. You can find it here on Amazon. The book was the result of my lifelong interest in creativity and in 2015 I presented a paper on creativity training at the Arts in Society Conference in London, England.

During my career I've had to find images for a multitude of applications. Luckily I've always been a fan of photography and that has inspired my photo posters in my Zazzle store. My favorite subjects to shoot are architecture and landscapes, many images are from my travels in Europe and North America. Historic Preservation is near and dear to my heart and older buildings have a special appeal to me, but there are plenty of other cityscapes, landscapes and shoreline pictures for you to choose from. 

An outgrowth of my time  spent in art classes and sewing many home decor and fashion projects sparked my interest in pattern design. Some of my fabric designs are for sale, available from my Spoonflower store.
