Iím an artist, accomplished equestrian rider/instructor, raptor rehabilitator/trainer, and have a passion for wildlife which Iíve portrayed in my photography. I am very active with a few non-profit organizations assisting them with production of their website photos, newsletters, public displays and marketing materials. I also take birds of prey to schools, nature centers and other public forums to introduce the different species of raptors and their importance in nature to the public. In my spare time you can find me kayaking around area lakes and rivers, boating or fishing on Lake Erie or hiking with my big black dog, Huxley. I will probably have a camera around my neck as well. Along with displaying works at local art shows, I have my garden art, walking sticks and photographs at TrueNorth Gallery at French Creek Nature Center in Sheffield Village, Ohio. I am also a member of the Medina County Photographers of the Park, Ohio Ornithological Society, supporter of The Peregrine Fund, Medina Raptor Center, and Miller Nature Preserve. Im also a newly appointed field contributor to Nature Photographer Magazine in Lubec, Maine. I live in Medina, Ohio.
