March for Science: All About Images

mark_microscope_edit_002The March for Science will take place April 22, 2017 in Washington, D.C., St. Paul, MN, and elsewhere. This march is not for just Democrats or Republicans. Instead, it is a non-political march designed to highlight the importance of science and of decisions based on sound science.

I march because I support science:

  • Photographs (and the selfie) define us and who we are.
  • Cell phones and digital cameras capture memories as they happen.
  • Without photography, we would be left with only a few very expensive paintings.
  • Dyes, pigments, and other materials last for generations.
  • Printing allows the rapid dissemination of ideas.
  • Driver’s licences, IDs, and passports establish identity.
  • Medical imaging saves lives.

mark_pen-tester_editI have worked in medical imaging, consumer photography, and security printing. In these fields, different technologies come together to create products that would be impossible without science.

I march because I support science, and science supports me.

I have over twenty years professional experience in all aspects of photography and digital imaging. I am Chair of the ISO WG5 TG2 committee responsible for physical properties and durability of imaging material and am currently with HID Global working on systems for security printing for IDs, licenses, and credit cards. Previously, I was Director of Digital Development at Creative Memories from 2009 to 2012 and was responsible for the Creative Memories digital products and services. I also established and directed the Creative Memories Technology Center, which evaluated new products prior to product introduction, assisted with production difficulties, and provided technical information to support product sales.
