Thanks for stopping by. If you are interested in finding out more about me and what I’ve been up to you’re in the right place. The first thing you should know is I’m a late bloomer.  I mention that because it took me  long time to  figure out what interested me and what I might be good at.  Along the way I came to the realization that I am an artist… believe it or not, that was news to me. I’ve never been much of a planner, I just jump in and figure things out as I go. My attention span is about ten years, after that I gotta move on. I’ve collaborated with other artists from poets to high school art students. I’ve produced theater productions and multi-event festivals.  I’ve written a play. I’m a pretty good photographer, made a documentary film, and I’ve gotten up on stage as a solo performer.  All of that happened after I turned 50, so I guess that qualifies me as a late bloomer! My photography has appeared in museums, corporate publications and on CDs and book covers too.  A few even hang in private collections. I have a habit of sometimes getting ahead of the curve. In the early days of the Internet in the 90s, I tried selling chocolate online and couldn’t convince a bank to give me a credit card merchant account…” buy chocolate online, who in their right mind would do that?” was the common refrain from baffled bankers I met with.  A guy named Jeff Bezos eventually managed to answer that question quite well. I’m a free-wheeling cook who finds a way to make something interesting and tasty with whatever happens to be in the garden or fridge. My bagels are infamous and my fruitcake can charm even the most ardent fruitcake hater.  I make a great pizza too. I stumbled into the tech biz in my 40s and worked for twenty years as the Technology Director for a small school district.  On occasion, I write and even try a bit of poetry.  I’m most proud of The David Serko Project and having been a stay at home dad for 13 years.  I wish I was a better guitar player. I love being a grandfather. My current interest is baking artisanal style breads using local grains.  If you really want to know more about me take a look at my blog entries on this site.
