I picked up my frist DSLR in the spring of 2013 after being thrown from a horse. My right radius was in 5 pieces, ulna was fractured. Distal right lateral femur was fractured and i was subsequently out of work for several weeks. I live on a farm so the subject matter was there, and I found myself sitting out with my camera for several hours a day. I have always loved wildlife, in fact my dream was to be a wildlife biologist. I ended up in nursing and make a good living from that however a piece of me was always missing. Photography has filled that void for me and brought me back to what I love. Through the past 6 years I watched my skills grow and in 2019 made my first trip to Africa, Botswana on the Chobe river. One of my photos from that trip was made a finalist for outdoor photographer magazines annual wildlife contest. My goal with joining PSA is to continue to grow as a photographer and professional so I can share my images and hopefully spread the message of conservation.
