Anyone who knows me would know 3 things about me; I'm a christian, I study chinese martial arts (Wu-Shu), and the animal world fasinates me to no end. Here is a the short list of things that have bitten me; various dogs as a kid, a least 10 snakes over the years, 3 different Bonnethead sharks and a hawkbill turtle (400 pounds). My start in photography began upon purchasing a cannon FT 35 millimeter camera in a pawn shop as a teenager. Experimenting with photography and chasing animal seemed to me to be a real challange that has stayed with me. While attending college (S.U.N.Y. at Plattsburgh New York) they offered a course in scuba diving and I thought that buy adding this knowledge I could play around with the creatures in the sea. Later in life I spent 5 years as a volunteer diver at the Baltimore National Aquirium ( accounting for the shark and turtle bites). I never stopped taking pictures since that first camera and the end result is my first book God's Little Friends
