Dave's Photo & Travelblogue

Photo shoots. World travel advice. Tips on Munich & environs.


David Douglas is a Mechanical Engineer, recently employed testing DRAM memory chips and enabling the latest high-speed GDDR5 graphics chip testing. But, due to a price war among the Koreans and the eventual death of the last trench-memory-cell manufacturer, he now finds himself busy with other activities: writing, traveling, and taking photos.  In his writing life you can find him riding the seas of Kartus, bringing demon spirits from the other side, and concocting stress-induced romances that would make even the most jilted of lovers wince.

The author has read hundreds of fantasy and sci-fi novels over the past 20 years. If that isn’t enough, his mother is an English and foreign language teacher. This qualifies him as one of the few engineers that (thinks he) can write.

In his spare time, David is an avid cyclist, Ultimate frisbee player, sometimes skydiver, bass guitarist/singer, and snowboarder (if you know where he can find a cheap Virus raceboard, do say). He lives in Munich, Germany, home of the Oktoberfest, which strangely enough takes place in the end of September.

    Good day

    I am emailing from South Africa, from Horizons magazine the in-flight magazine for British Airways and we would like your images of surfing in Munch to go along with a story we are doing fro our April issue, we would credit your name in the magazine.


  2. Hi Lesley, that would require advance setup and planning. I don’t have model releases for these blog photos, which would be required for “real” publication. Of course I could work on an article for you but it would not be free. 😉

    hello Mr. Douglas,

    I am an 11th grade student enrolled in Norwich High school, Norwich NY. I am in a Project lead the way elective class called Principles of engineering, that if we pass get a college credit for whatever engineering field we choose. For a project we need to write a thirty page paper on a field of expertise we are interested in. I am hoping to become a mechanical engineer after I graduate and most likely serve in the military. For the paper we are required to find, and contact an engineer such as yourself and obtain as much knowledge as possible for the project. If u could email me informing me if your able and interested in aiding me with this project. My email is ericolsen416@gmail.com

    Eric Olsen
