When I’m not connecting with people through my career in the medical profession, I try to connect with nature and wildlife in whatever ways I can. I obtained certificates in Wildlife Education and Feline Husbandry while working with various species including black bear, bobcat, and lynx. My passion, however, is photography. I feel such a spiritual connection to nature and wildlife and I try to portray that through my photography and art. It’s my intention to capture the essence of the landscapes, the personality of the animals, and the story of whatever my subject might be. My hope is to inspire others to connect on a deeper level, to get out and see nature beyond the walls of their everyday lives, and to take an interest in preserving this one Earth we call home.
