I've been interested in wildlife since first slipping beneath the cold clear waters of Newfound Lake in New Hampshire at the age of ten and watching a perch guard her nest of eggs. Growing up along the coast of the northeastern United States my interest in wildlife led me to scuba diving and underwater photography. For many years I dove extensively in New England waters and throughout the Caribbean, always with a camera in hand. My wildlife photographic passion has expanded to a range of terrestrial subjects, and I am especially attracted to northern climes and the Arctic region.
