I was born in the United States and lived in Australia for ten years. In 1989 I returned and currently reside in Northern California. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and have made it a priority to spend time exploring new places. Through this desire, I've been privileged to have witnessed amazing beauty and breathtaking scenery. I was never satisfied with having a fading memory of what I had seen. After discovering an interest in photography, I realized I was able to capture some of those scenes on camera and my new found interest quickly became my passion. Today photography continues to offer a great deal of personal satisfaction as I continues in my pursuit to create fine landscape and nature photographs.
