I had taken down a bunch of my old posts after the mess with getting fired from CenturyLink after working there for 28 years, because of the Cemetery photographs I took.
When I learned that I was going to be reported to the police, the FBI, The various news stations, I had called my manager that Saturday night to warn him that I may be in the news, and told him about the photographs.
He turned around and reported it to the company Legal and Human Resources on that Monday. He then called me back and said to take some time off, because the company did not want the news media to find out where I worked.
During all of this, John Baku put me in touch with NCSF and NCSF acted as a media interface and did what they could to make the stories go away. At that time, I did not want anything to affect my job at CenturyLink.
NCSF was fairly effective in quelling the media.
All seemed to be well and good at my day job at CenturyLink until Thursday November 8 when I was called into an unannounced meeting with corporate “Investigators” and the Director of my department, and my boss. I was notified I was suspended pending a decision on my photography and the next day they fired me.
Well, I am still unemployed. I have been scratching by on selling prints doing some paid shoots, selling some of my extra stuff around the house.
So I had taken down a bunch of my posts because I did not want it up during my “Job Search”
My change of heart came around because I decided I do not want to try hiding what I do anymore. A future employer needs to see all of me, and I felt it best to be open about it all. “No more Surprises”

A Dear friend of mine could really use your help. She has been very sick for a few years now and is trying to get medical treatment. After losing my job last year I could no longer afford to cover her under health insurance. So please help her in any way you can.
Here is to welcoming 2013.
2012 was a very trying year for me. There were a few wonderful events, but I have to say, for the most part, it was not so good.
I am looking forward to a new start and a lot of new adventures in 2013. It will be the year of fresh new beginnings for me. A start over.
Here is to new images, a new job, potentially a change of residence, a brave new world. I hope I can do my part to make the world a little better for everyone.
A nice article written about me. It is in German, so you may have to translate. Most of the pictures are of me though. Perhaps I should do more modeling and less photographing.
