I’ve always loved taking pictures…even when I didn’t really know how.  I’ve also always loved teaching others.  I was the person who loved to train the new people at whatever job I had. (There’ve been a few…an environmental regulator, an aquarium curator…yes I swam with sharks and got bit by a moray eel, a juggler at the games at Six Flags in my younger years) But I digress…

I really love seeing an aspiring photographer take a shot that they didn’t know they could and just grin ear to ear.  I’m tickled by Photoshop newbies when they see how much they can improve what the camera spits out and make the images reflect their emotions when they captured them.

My photographic goals are simple, to Inspire People! I want to inspire people to better appreciate the natural world and hopefully take simple steps to improve the environment.
