    After retiring from a career in cancer research and public health, I studied art. I began working on sculpture, then painted abstract landscapes before getting serious about photography. My wife and I now enjoy traveling to places where the natural world and its wild inhabitants remain. My photos try to capture the beauty and fascination of these treasures. Any profits from the sale of my photos will be donated to organizations that help preserve wild natural areas and wildlife.
