Who I am
My name is Marc. I am a photographer for the psychological benefits. There is a zen-like moment of nothingness – where the world disappears and the only thing I’m thinking about is the shot I’m taking – that I love about photography.
I try to notice the things that are right in front of me – try to make the mundane remarkable.
When I’m not shooting photos, I’m a father to two awesome children who regularly remind me to be more fun. I’m a husband to the coolest chick around who lets me indulge my stupid obsessions (like Star Wars and Batman) without judgment. I’m a teacher of high school students, and recently learned that the world can be changed in fun ways by working with teenagers.
As of 9 July, 2o12, my family and I moved to Jakarta, Indonesia. In an otherwise uncharacteristic move, we decided upon a life of adventure instead of the comfortable and safe life we’d been building for ourselves up to that point. It is a most wonderful adventure, so far, and our daily life has been turned into an education in culture. I can’t quite understand how we all decided this was a great idea, but the children are getting a great education, my wife and I get to work in the same school, and we have quite a lot of traveling around South Asia already in the works.
Quick note: on February 28th, WordPress decided that I would be one of many Freshly Pressed sites that day. I was inundated with views (3052 – whoo!) and comments from people who really wanted to let everyone know how they felt. It was weird, in a nice way. I commented back to as many people as I could and the comments keep flowing in even now (March 9). I switched from another blogging service to WordPress last year and I have been more than pleased. Thanks, WordPress.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at the world through my eyes. You’re very nice.
