Jeff Kauffman was born in 1961 and grew up in rural Pennsylvania during a time when people communicated using rotary telephones. After earning a Computer Science degree from Penn State University, Jeff moved to Washington DC -- and later to Austin TX – to build a career in software engineering. His photography interests began at Washington School of Photography and continued with Santa Fe Workshops. Jeff has been developing his photography while also working full time in technology consulting. His work has appeared in Conde Nast Traveler’s truth.traveler, Smithsonian.com, INSite Austin, and The Art of Seeing (pub. Alcove Books), along with various See.Me exhibitions worldwide.
Jeff lives in Austin, uses a smartphone, and tells dumb jokes.
