I am a botanical photographer and naturalist based in Cincinnati, Ohio. My creative work's mission is to foster human kinship with nature. I consider myself to be “nature’s ambassador” and in every image I make, I want to tell the story that lies within, from the smallest and most commonplace of insects and flowers, to the largest of mountains. I choose to use the word “kinship” because it represents connection, respect, admiration, love, appreciation, understanding, celebration, and unity with the world around us.
