My lifelong interest in photography has become a passion over the last several years. My publishing credits include several articles in national magazines, both as author and photographer. My work includes specialty travel, birds (I am an avid birder), landscapes and scenics. As a recently retired motorcycle rider with almost 200,000 miles logged on two wheels, I have traveled the back roads of the American West and Canada quite extensively. I particularly enjoy finding beautiful, quirky, and out-of-the-way places off the beaten tourist path.
