Positions and Achievements
I'm an avid conservationist, birder, and nature/wildlife enthusiast. My gradual love of birds came about 15 years ago, when I hung my first feeder in my backyard. That begun my admiration and passion for becoming educated and seeking out these amazing animals.
I bird at many local areas, including my own "back yard" of Valley Forge Park and Valley Creek corridor, Longwood Gardens, and Stroud Preserve. I've traveled with bird/nature guides in the San Francisco Bay area including Pt. Reyes and Bodega Bay, and the island of Anguilla in the Caribbean.
I am a hobbyist photographer as well, and while I enjoy capturing images of birds, wildlife, and nature, I don't take it too too seriously. I've found fretting about the shot takes away from the simplicity of being able to share a space with such amazing creatures.
