I have been enthralled with animals and birds and started photographing and observing them in my youth. My travels in pursuit of bird and wildlife photography have taken me to 6 continents and I have photographed over 1,700 species of birds. I have been a moderator for Nature Photographers Network since 2007 and enjoy mentoring photographers both online and during the photo tours and workshops that I lead. I live with my wife Angie and 2 daughters in the Houston area. Angie is from Ecuador so we spend some time there each year as well.
