Born in Kansas City, I was first awed by nature in my childhood during family driving vacations throughout the US. I gained greater appreciation for the natural world during many days and nights hiking and camping as a Boy Scout; eventually becoming an Eagle Scout. Nature and science continued to be an interest during college where I earned a BS in Geology. I received my first camera in high school and became seriously interested in the process of capturing images while in the Air Force, stationed in Arizona and Thailand. I was drawn more and more into the photographic world while working with professional photographers though various jobs in advertising agencies and corporate environments, eventually serving as manager of marketing communications and chief photographer for a major industrial equipment manufacturer. I am particularly interested in revealing the spiritual, sacred power of natural places. They are everywhere around us, if we just stop to really see. Photos are truly gifts of time. Through these windows, sometimes compressed, sometimes expanded, we are able to view images we are not privileged to see in the world of real time. My goal is to give the viewer an idea of how spiritual and important nature is and how essential it is to protect the wild and free planet we are blessed to inhabit.
