Doug Stinson enjoys pondering connections between seemingly unrelated facts and sharing his discoveries. He is also a physicist, a photographer, a new product realization executive, and a student of history, the environment and religion.
Originally from “The granite town of the granite state” (Milford, New Hampshire), Doug received his BA degree from New College, an experimental liberal arts institution, in Sarasota FL. He continued his education at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana where he received his Ph.D. in physics. After graduation, Doug has worked as a researcher and manager in the fields of data storage, telecommunications, and medical devices.
Pursuing a life-long passion, he was appointed to his local community’s Environmental Conservation Board, becoming its chairman. In this capacity, and also as newsletter editor of a non-profit promoting hiking trails, he spoke and published on land-use planning and natural history.
Doug’s other passion is photography which he has been pursuing through many technological changes, starting with B&W film and a range-finder camera and progressing to his current favorite, a Canon 5D Mark II and extensive Photoshop manipulation. His photographs have won many local and regional awards.
