Birds are my passion and following this passion has taken me to many countries and across America in pursuit of ďlife birds,Ē new species of birds Iíve never seen before. While looking for birds, thereís always something else interesting to observe and photograph: exotic wildlife and plants, intriguing people and cultures, and beautiful landscapes and geology. My scientific background and my love of nature are evident in my photographs. A native of upstate New York and a graduate of Cornell University and The Ohio State University, Iíve lived on Cape Cod for more than twenty-five years. When Iím not traveling or birding, I teach AP Environmental Science and am head of the science department at Falmouth High School. My photographs have been exhibited in juried shows at the Falmouth Artistís Guild, Cotuit Center for the Arts, SRD Gallery in Dennis, the Chatham Creative Arts Center, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, and the Photography Center of Cape Cod as well as published in several magazines.
