Nature enthusiast, amateur birder and wildlife photographer in Cleveland, Ohio USA. My intent when creating images of nature is to highlight biodiversity, record the natural lives of creatures, and to enforce the importance of conserving wildlife and their habitats. You don’t have to travel to exotic places to see a large variety of wildlife, you simply need to look and listen to the world around you. In fact, the great majority of my images are from within 50 miles of my home in northeast Ohio. Prints are available for sale at my non-profit gallery in Sheffield Village Ohio, and online at my Etsy shop, here on my website, social media platforms or direct contact. All birds and other wildlife I photograph are legitimately wild, not baited or in captivity unless I state otherwise. The safety and protection of wildlife, habitats and the ecosystems they are part of, always comes before getting a great shot.
