I have always been a person fascinated by the outdoors and the workings of nature
and life on this planet. I majored in biology at Hartwick College and later earned
a Masters degree, and spent 39 years teaching biology and earth science on Long
Island, Monson and the Hampden Wilbraham school systems. Since retiring I have
continued learning through my own nature journaling and photography. My specialty
is photographing very small things from snowflakes to bugs eyes. Comparing the
nature of New England to other places has been a passion, so I have been in all 50
states, all Canadian providences, and all 7 continents including Antarctica.
