Raised by television, books, and the occasional ride to t-ball practice, Bartz set out to figure out the world. Much upset and frustration was borne of things not being the way they ought to be. Salvation came in the form of a red-headed fellow betting clerk at the Houston horse track. She asked him what he wanted to do when he grows up, so he lives with her now in a small lakeside town in East Texas. A philosopher by nature, he has engaged in a number of professions including(but not limited to): Sailor, truck driver, electronic sales, teaching lab assistant, technical writer, scaled down Formula One mechanic, other knuckle-busting mechanicing, machinist, taxi driver, superficially bad-ass houseware and hip 80s wear sales, internet poker radio personality, poker tournament host, one-hour photo processor, warehouse forklift driver, groundskeeper and raccoon tamer, carpenter's assistant and one night in cold-call telephone sales. He has an insatiable need to impart 'wisdom' to others, but maturity has helped him to ease up on people (except tailgaters).
Photography is a natural extension of his skewed view of the world, and image manipulation allows him to go to new places.He writes gooder than the average bear, but doesn't let it go to his head, primarily because thus far he has been too much of a coward to write the epic treatise on 'zen and the Art of NOTHING.' His musical tastes are as wispy as the wind and he can be caught contradicting himself on a regular basis. He is also proud of his lack of formal art education since it keeps him unaware of the rules he is breaking. He can't help being an art critic, but you can get him to shut up for a minute when he witnesses beauty. Then he's off gushing and wishing he had come up with it first.
