I am a Ticonderoga native and have lived here my entire life. I make my home on beautiful Eagle Lake. I am a certified Wildlife Habitat Naturalist, licensed New York State Wildlife Rehabilitator, and a certified National Wildlife Federation Habitat Steward and Endangered Species Ambassador. I am also in charge of the local Adopt-A-Highway Program for Eagle Lake Property Owners, Inc.
My work has been included in many local and regional art shows, in magazines, and most notably in the history books, In the Path of War; Children of the American Revolution Tell Their Stories; the Annual Journal of the Washington County Historical Society; and Apple Seeds: growing up in the American Revolution.
In 2012, the National Arbor Day Foundation chose one of my photos as their poster image for that year. In 2014, I printed my first two volumes of photography books, and I am currently working on my third book, which will be completed this winter. Currently, my art can be seen at my home studio in Eagle Lake, throughout the town of Ticonderoga, and in numerous private collections.
I enjoy hiking, kayaking, photography, adventure racing, skydiving, riding my vintage motorcycle, volleyball, rock collecting, historical reenactments, and creating and maintaining walking trails, among many other activities.
