About Leftonred Atanycorner

Yes, That is my real name. It is a legal name change and was done in 1998. Everyone calls me 'Lefty.' It started out as a screen name and I decided to change it because someone told me I couldn't have a name like that. It wasn't changed for any other reason than I don't like people telling me I can't do something just because it doesn't make sense to them. I have never been a conformist.

There was a neat article written about me in the New Yorker Magazine, and I took 11th place in the 2007 Name of the Year Tournament.

I am an 8th generation native New Yorker.  I started out as a still photographer, and have since moved onto camera operation for the film and TV industry. I'm mainly known as a Steadicam Operator.  Most of my work recently has been of the motion type, although I still do commercial still photography.  When I'm not capturing media somehow, I'm running my IT consulting business.

I am also known as The Social Network Meister.

There is a guy using Wordpress as Leftonred, it is NOT me.

I have been self employed most of my life, and have never writen a formal resume, I did however create this for your reading pleasure.


Left On Red
There is also a cool Girls group named Left On Red.  I am obviously not them.  They sound really really good, as I've seen video of them playing,  and I'm waiting to randomly run into them,  as they Busk in the NYC Transit system,  and tell them how cool they are.

There used to be a Ska group down South,  I don't know if they are still around,  that plays as Leftonred.  I did not play with them, but thought about auditioning as their Air Drummer. They've been around a lot longer than the girls,  but not as long as me :)


Lefton Red
There is something called Lefton and it comes in the color Red, as well as other colors.  It's ceramic and looks like it could have been around for longer than all of us,  including you.

Can you make a Left On Red in the United States? Apparently, you can.

I started using the screen name around 1996.  Some Bozo from a Tech Seminar registration office told me I couldn't have a name like that when I registered for one of their events.  I told him "Yes I can!"  And changed it soon after that.

It's not that creative a name.  If I could think of it,  anybody else could as well.
