Life After High School (tell us what you've been up to):

Well, let's see, here. After graduating from CPHS I headed to Carbondale, Illinois, to major in photography at Southern Illinois University. Between my sophomore and junior years I met and married Beverly (Bee) Shifflett who was a friend of my sister Sandy who lived in Charlottesville, Virginia.
We went to Carbondale but my schooling was interrupted by a four-year tour in the Air Force as a still photographer. During that time my first son Joseph II was born.
When I finished my tour we returned to SIU and I finished my degree in Cinema/Photography. We moved to Atlanta and after a couple of jobs unrelated to film/photography I began work as a First Assistant Cameraman on movies, TV shows and commercials. I retired on January 1, 2016. I still do the occasional day or two on commercials, movies & TV shows.

If you're curious you can see my listing at the Internet Movie Database. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0859075/

If you're curious as to what a 1st Assistant Cameraman (also known as a "Focus Puller") does you can learn about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focus_puller
