Motto: I thrive on the challenge of capturing the power and peace of Mother Nature and the thrill of wildlife at its wildest.



I am a Nature and Travel Photographer raised in a small New England town currently residing in the Chesapeake Bay area.  Despite my small-town upbringing, I've had extensive foreign travel opportunities, even spending a year living, traveling, and photographing the vibrant and dynamic people and places across Asia, from Thailand to Mongolia and from Seoul to Shanghai.  I also spent about seven years in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, where I frequently made trips to local beaches to photograph the abundance of birds, beachscapes, and dramatic cloud-filled sunsets. But most of all, I love getting away to the American West or other unique outdoor destinations to take in the fresh air and wild scenes.

Since my youth, I've been fascinated by nature and the outdoors. Whether it was paddling the lakes of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area or hiking the Appalachian Trail, I was always moved by fresh air, sun-kissed waterways, and windswept trees. After college in the Berkshires, the U.S. Marine Corps consumed much of my time and energy, but I tried to make the effort to test my skills in my free time and take advantage of the interesting and stimulating locations I've been assigned.  Now that I've retired from the military, I've continued to challenge my vision, creativity, and ingenuity to get the shot.
