I'm a retired teacher living in Southern Ontario, Canada. I worked 35 years full time and 10 years part time as a classroom teacher and guidance counselor with the Peel District School Board. I also worked part time in the Faculties of Education of York University and the University of Toronto in their Additional Qualifications Programs.
I purchased my first SLR camera back in the 60's and instantly fell in love with photography. My love of the outdoors led to my keen interest in hiking and nature/wildlife photography. My hiking and photography excursions have taken me on trips to East Africa, the Canadian and American Rockies, Patagonia (Argentina and Chile), Ecuador and the Galapagos Archipelago, Costa Rica and Florida and will hopefully lead me to more of the world's fascinating locations before I 'hang up my cameras and hiking boots'.
Although it's always nice to travel to exotic locations around the world, I'm thankful for the countless opportunities right here in my own 'back yard' of Southern Ontario.
