I'm a late bloomer...
I’ve tried my hand at a number of things over the years but, the most fulfilling projects have come in the last ten years when I entered my mid-50s, who would have thought? I’m not much of a planner, I just jump in and figure things out as I go. I love collaborating with other artists from poets to high school art students. I‘ve produced several multi-event festivals. I’ve written a play. I’m a pretty good photographer, made a documentary film, and gotten up on stage as a solo performer. Oh, and my photographs have appeared in several museums, adorning the covers of corporate publications and books and hang in private collections. I’m not bragging, that’s just the facts.
I have a bad habit of sometimes getting ahead of the curve. In the early 90s, I tried selling chocolate online and couldn’t get a bank to give me a credit card merchant account…” buying chocolate online, who in their right mind would do that?”. Jeff Bezos eventually answered that question.
I’m a free-wheeling cook who specializes in making something 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 a 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.
None of this, of course, would have been possible if not for my muse and biggest fan my wife of 41 years Sue.
