HOW I MAKE a little MONEY: i work as a loan officer/mortgage broker, lending in most of the 50 states from CA to IL/midwestern states, and downward to FL. if you need a mortgage or have questions...PLEASE - do not hesitate to ask. i'll be sure to help any way i can.


If you add me, please say so - it's always nice to go through that "hello" formality.


I can be emailed at:


I'm also on Friendster: mark40e

i sell my photos! if you see something you like, please let me know - i sell signed copies for varying prices from $55 up to $125 (for various sizes). framing options also available!

if you are in chicago or nearby, i'll be happy to meet, so i can personally hand you the photo, thank you for having an interest in my stuff, and buy you a drink - or many.




I live here in the city (Chicago) - I am often at Sayat Nova, Orso's on Wells, Starbucks on Rush (trend spot, but hey, the coffees are pretty good), Redno5, Jydenka, Gejas, now and then and eat often at Lou Malnatis and Pizanos...

Summertime is great in Chicago, but the winters leave me frozen...

I am always looking out for new models to shoot with and use the photos for books that I put together (LOOKING FOR PUBLISHER...).

This Live Journal is a collection of my work for the latest project which is called:
Nights of Whiskey and Roses. Writings and photographs revolve around my experiences, insights, travel
and people.
