I launched in 1995, named after a small company I shared with Sidney Damon and Laney Stephens.

In 2003, Sandy Johan redesigned and reorganized the site. We have followed her design in all our subsequent pages and sites.

In 2005 I spilt the site into sevral sites:
This site,
Peter Portugal Automobile Design and Fabrication
Esalen Photographs from the 1960s
Gestalt Golf
Lazy Compost
Wild Horses
Beach House Nicaragua

I hope you enjoy these pages. Hello out there!
