I have always felt the need to be creative. As a child I loved to sketch, draw, and paint. As a senior in high school I found the medium of photography and a life long passion was born. I have spent the past nearly four decades trying to capture unique images of the world around us. I traveled the world as a United States Marine for nearly a quarter of a century and this gave me the opportunity to capture images that I could only have dreamt about had I not served my country. Today I find myself fascinated with the beauty of nature and wildlife. I live in Tampa and being near the gulf coast has presented the opportunity to capture seascapes and flora and fauna near it's shores. I still manage to travel and I always take my camera wherever I go. I have captured many beautiful photographs over the years and I hope that you will spend some time browsing through my galleries and if you see something you like I hope you'll want to make your own.
