I'm a nature photographer/writer (mostly) working on environmental issues. I currently focus on the biodiversity of barrier islands, endangered species of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, adventure travel and primitive survival. My first book, Natural Wonders of Assateague Island, will be released in June 2017 by Schiffer Publishing. I'm self taught (like most!) and I came into this field after working in zoo/aquaria and conservation. I also teach courses in Research Methodology and Animal Behavior at a Baltimore based university.
