As a young child I was fascinated with nature. This interest in the natural world eventually led me to earn a degree in environmental studies from Colorado State University and to permanently relocate from the North East to the West. After graduation, I found a career with the National Park Service as an interpretive ranger. From the depths of Death Valley to the flanks of Denali, I lived and worked in some of the most spectacular places on the planet. After 32 years of working in 10 different park sites, I retired from Federal service in 2009 and now spend my time travelling, doing international consultation on preservation projects, teaching photography workshops, and working on my art.

Artist Statement

My artwork reflects my enormous joy in spending time in the out of doors and interacting with the natural world. The goal of my work is to awaken a sense of wonder in the viewer, fostering appreciation and ultimately preservation of our environment.
