Welcome to my photography site. I am a marine ecologist and a museum curator. I am also an enthusiastic amateur who loves photography. My primary orientation is that of a chronicler of natural places and organisms. I shoot to capture the realism of the organisms and places I photograph. Sometimes I use my photographic skills to document a scientific phenomenon, other times I shoot to capture the beauty that I see in what is before me.
As a scientist and educator, I am drawn to the real, trying to capture the moment as I have seen it. I realize, of course, that my reality is not that of everyone else in the world, but is uniquely shaped by my life experiences.
Ultimately, I hope others will find interest, beauty, value, or some other reason for finding my photographs appealing and interesting. I invite you to come along on my journey through the world, as seen through the lens of my camera.
