I am a retired Hewlett-Packard/Agilent software engineer and have been living in Ecuador since 2007. I volunteered as technical support for the Reto Rural project, repairing computers, recording and taking photos to document the project. During the project, I began a relationship and married Susana. Our relationship has continued my technical support for her various projects in South and Central America. Besides photography, my other hobby is food preparation and I do the cooking in our home.
