I am a nature and portrait photographer based in Gainesville, Florida. My photos of our prairies, springs and alligator-filled swamps convey the intimate connection our community has with these special places. I also enjoy making environmental portraits of people that show their dynamic personalities.Having traveled to 28 countries and counting, I enjoy photographing and writing about other cultures. Some of the places I've lived in include Thailand, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, and Uganda. Capturing light in a little box helps me to realize the impermanence of all beings and to express my sense of wonder and curiosity for them.
