In addition, he also collaborates with small and large local businesses and non-profit organizations.
I love Coke Zero, chips too and I will make a trip to SUBWAY just for the cookies. I am a big fan of rotary powered cars and skateboarding. I have been to Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, England, Belgium, Luxembourg, Canada and many more places. Loved the culture, the food and the people. We have a ton of photos from our travels-all on film. I have been shooting (that's shop talk for taking pictures) since 1989 and have shot hundreds if not thousands of rolls of film. I fell in love with photography while being the editor-in-chief for my high school yearbook and re-discovered my passion for photography in the digital era. I have 2 great kids, a big lovable Hershey dog, and two independent cats. I also have the best wife on the planet and I love her more than anything.
While living in Germany, I worked for a department of defense instrumentality (hey, that's what they called it) and managed multi-million dollar stores. After a successful career in management, I made the decision to go back to school and somehow managed to graduate with a BS in Biology and Biochemistry (summa cum laude) and then followed up the dual BS degree with a Master of Science degree (summa cum laude). Earned a ton of awards while in college that I am proud of but we keep them in a desk because my walls are covered with more important things: pictures of my family and some of my landscape photos.
I only take what I do serious, hardly ever myself. I speak sarcasm fluently and I refuse to clean the cat box. My name is Rudy and I want to tell your story.
