About Mark Johnson

My wife Bev and I live in the forest of rural Douglas County, Colorado, near the towns of Parker and Castle Rock.

I started working with computers in the U.S. Coast Guard, then got a degree in electronics and worked designing and prototyping electronic circuits for a few years. The electronics work evolved back into computer work again during the early days of personal PCs, and I have been working in the IT field ever since. Over the years I've built a lot of computers, worked as a network engineer, database administrator, security administrator, and several other IT roles. For the past several years I have concentrated on software design and development.

Alcoholism was also my constant companion and best friend during most of those years; unfortunately it controlled more of the first 20 years of my adult life than I did. I now think of my adult life as being two completely different lives; the first 20 years are difficult for me to think back on but happily the past 20+ years have been alcohol free and full of healing. One day at a time; that is all I can ask for.

I love to spend time in the great outdoors, and photography is a way I capture small pieces of those experiences. I hope you enjoy the pictures and the occasional stories I'll add to go along with them.
