In the autumn of 2004, I moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington. I began taking photos to share some of the neat places I discovered while exploring the areas around campus with my family and friends back at home. I started with a pocket-sized point-and-shoot digital camera, back when they were starting to become popular. As I learned more about the art and science of photography, I’ve moved on to cameras and lenses that afford better manual control.

I still enjoy taking walks around the beautiful University of Washington campus on weekends and capturing some of the scenery.

Most of my earlier work is posted on my blog, Ordered Pixels (no longer online). More recently, I’ve been using flickr to organize and share my photos. A few selected shots are shown below.

Technical and Product Photography

In addition to my hobby photography, I often take photos of my own and others’ work at Intel Labs Seattle. My photos have been featured in various promotional materials, posters, presentations, papers, and technical documentation.
