|about this site|
This site began in 1996, a fairly early date in the history of the
Internet--at least the popular use of the Internet. Eric Szerbinski
had recently begun managing a site for Suzanne Vega (songwriter friend
of mine), and he approached me with the idea of creating a homepage
for me as a related artist. It would be attached to Suzanne's homepage,
but would be an independent site. Here's what it looked like in 1997:

The site continues to grow, and takes a good deal of tending and feeding.
The basic layout is done with Macromedia's Dreamweaver, and various
graphic elements were done with Fireworks and Flash. All the photography
is done on Photoshop. I have never liked Flash websites--find them needlessly
complex with lots of pointless movement, and rarely a good environment
for displaying photographs. So, I have stuck with basic html and kept
things relatively simple.
