I was born in the United States in Wisconsin where I quickly developed a love for nature due to many family camping trips. Later, I took my own family on trips to many state and National Parks around the U.S. and while hiking and sightseeing gained a proficiency in photography and videography. When I retired from my job at a medical company, I became a full-time professional landscape and animal photographer. I now live in Texas which has much natural beauty from the Guadalupe Mountains and Big Bend in the west to The Hill Country and the Piney Woods to the east. My personal belief is that through nature we become closer to its Creator and by appreciating natural beauty we gives glory to God.
