“I have been blessed with the ultimate ingredient that all travelers long to have and that is time-the time to travel whenever and wherever they have ever dreamed to explore. I have tried to keep a photographic record of my adventures while traveling the seven continents of the world; from the crashing waters and 30-foot waves of Drakes Passage in Antarctica to getting up-close, photographing the rare Tree Lions found only in a few places of Uganda. One can have a moment of truth on the highest mountains, from Nepal to Africa and Alaska seeing and photographing the most breathtaking landscapes in the world.

   Traveling has always been part of my life. When I was a teenager, I traveled through a majority of the states and into Mexico and Canada. I was the thirteenth child in my family, and two of my brothers in the moving business liked to take me along on the long hauls so I could see the world” or maybe it was to help unload all that furniture! I lived in Europe while serving in the US Army. This tour of duty allowed me to visit many of the countries there.

   In the '70s and early '80s, I was fortunate enough to return for a different view of Europe that I could not previously afford on a soldier's salary. Since then I have visited some truly fascinating places. The journey and adventures continue to amaze me.”
