Greetings! I'm an instrument rated private pilot, aviation photographer, and special education teacher. I've been taking photos for over seven years now, mostly in the area of aviation. Only in the last couple of years have I begun venturing out to photograph things which don't fly. It's been a really great adventure, and has given me an even greater appreciation for the art of photography. Also, it's been great therapy as I'm able to spend quality time alone to reflect and become renewed.
