I have been away for a while dealing with a few life changing events, one of which included moving from Melbourne, Florida where I have lived for over 14 years since my retirement from the USAF, to Rock Hill, South Carolina to be closer to family

While I will miss my friends and the amazing wildlife I discovered during my time in Florida, I am looking forward to discovering new friends and wildlife in South Carolina

I dont have any new photos to post just yet as I am still learning my way around and locating new and exciting places for nature photography…I hope to have some new photos VERY soon

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I am a retired USAF Medic with over 22 years active duty and over 30 years as a Nationally Registered EMT. After 14 years of living in Melbourne, Florida and working fulltime in my second career as a Cardiology Technician at a local VA clinic, I am currently retired and living in Rock Hill, South Carolina

My hobbies include comic book & fantasy art drawing, Guitar, scrapbooking, PS3 and computer gaming, and of course photography!

My primary photographic interests are in nature photography with some sports and travel shots when the opportunity presents itself.

My main nature interests are birds (raptors primarily) and big cats, including my four house cats whom I don't have the heart to tell they really aren't BIG cats!

When it comes to choosing my photography subjects, I prefer wildlife over people, and often shoot in nature preserves and on various nature trails near my home, but I also take advantage of several nature parks and local zoos and travel throughout the southeastern states to practice my photographic techniques whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Current Residence: Rock Hill, South Carolina
Favourite genre of music: Country,Blues & Southern Rock, Blue Grass, Classic Rock
Favourite photographer: John Shaw
Favourite cartoon character: Calvin & Hobbes
Personal Quote: If it wasn't for the bad times, we wouldnt' know when we were having a good one!
Saw this Nature Photographer T-shirt on-line recently and HAD to get it!  This happens so often, it's almost not as funny as it sounds!!
