Al Williams

I live with my wife Louise in Meadowlakes, Texas. Our son Evan is a professor of philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh.

In 2005, I retired from Los Alamos National Laboratory, in New Mexico, where I provided database development for the Human Genome Project during most of my twenty years service.

Before relocating to New Mexico, I had worked at Datapoint in San Antonio, and then at Pennzoil in Houston.

I grew up in San Antonio where I graduated from John Marshall High School. After high school, I attended the University of Texas at Austin, graduating with a B.A., in Computer Science (after first studying music for several years).

Music is still an important part of my life. I began as a trombone player, but electric bass is now my primary instrument. I currently play bass with the Armadillo Swing Band and the Flashbacks, two 1940's style big bands, and a smaller 10-piece combo, the Skylarks.

Photography is another of my passions. I'm currently using a Sony a6000 My photo blog, Through This Lens has not been updated in a long time. For now the best place to see my photos is on Facebook.

And speaking of Facebook ( If you want to find out what I'm up to, that's where you can find me.
