I caught the urge to take pictures many years ago while working a summer job in Yellowstone National Park. The natural beauty I witnessed there made me want to share it with others. I began with a borrowed Nikon FM, and after taking thousands of bad photos, I finally started to get the hang of it. I sold my first image in 2003 and now live in Gustavus, Alaska, with Glacier Bay National Park as a backyard. I enjoy exploring the region, photographing wildlife, landscapes, and the night sky. I lead photo tours in the park and share unique places of natural beauty with visitors from around the world.
