I recently retired after 34 years with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, mostly as a Wildlife Biologist in Alaska. Photography was always a part of my job, so continuing it in my free time to freelance as an outdoor photographer was a natural extension. Now I look forward to combining photography with writing full-time well into the future. We all need to share the fun and wonder of the wild world to encourage outdoor adventuring in person, even going off the grid, and then sharing with others to continue the cycle!
