My Occupation Creating my mind's-eye view of the planet through photography
My Bio Raised in the outdoors, on the water and in the woods, along the shoreline through open meadows. Exploring woodwinds and organized sports. Observing, reading, and feeding a natural curiosity about everything which led to lots of travel, no career, a gypsy existence with few material treasures and little money, though with a home base that will always hold my heart. Few friends, but those are extremely close. There are no greater pleasures that being on the water, or hiking, or splitting wood, doing anything outside, or time spent with my family and best friend.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...

Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
