Environmental Geographer & Conservation Photographer.

Sharing the importance of ecosystems and the natural world for a more sustainable future.

I have been a photographer since high school when I started out with a film-based camera learning to shoot with just a single 50mm lens on black-and white film. My high-school years were spent overseas in Singapore where I traveled throughout Asia photographing unique places, cultures, and environments.

Today my photography focuses on wildlife, nature, and conservation in Texas and the Gulf Coast, including the interface between natural and developed areas. My role as a geographer and conservation photographer allows me to take a photojournalistic approach to studying changes to ecosystems and habitats. From trash and plastic in waterways, to increased development and loss of ecosystems, they are all reminders that a sustainable future is not a straight line of continued ever steady growth and development.

Through scientifically understanding changes occurring in our natural environment, and photographing those environments, I seek to share their importance and value with others so that we might work towards a more sustainable future. For if people can be more aware of their natural environment, not separate from it, they may appreciate it a little more. Then, through that appreciation, the value of conservation may be realized.

I also serve as a Board Member for Bayou Land Conservancy and a member of their Ambassador Program and Spring Creek Nature Trail Stewardship Program. Land trusts and conservation organizations like these are instrumental in helping to build a sustainable future by preserving our natural areas for current and future generations to enjoy. When people ask me what they can do, the answer is simple: Just get involved and lend your time, and if you have the financial means, please donate to organizations that are on the front lines of preserving the only planet we have to live on, Planet Earth.

Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find my images and stories compelling, and that you feel a bit more connected to nature and inspired to make a difference.
