The gentle lapping of the littoral waters, the smooth undulations of the solitary flicker, the pale purple mountains rising there in the distance; in these I find my rest and purpose.

My photographs intend to not merely document but show the underlying, hidden, and diverse cultures of the natural world. I want to display every aspect of a mallard; its bright blue speculum while in flight, or a hen escorting her brood to the water. I want to show that every organism has a purpose and is worth contemplating.

From marshland to coastal rain forests to mountains and beyond, there is beauty and drama to be immortalized on camera. A large part of this beauty comes from the entropy and ephemeron of it all. To me, nothing compares to being out in the field and being immersed in it.
