Welcome to my repository for ramblings on all things photography, nature, life, exploring, science and whatever else strikes my fancy.  Hope you all enjoy my musings!

A little about me.  I like dogs AND cats; a rarity indeed.  I like seafood.  I dig good beards.  My first passion is fishing, namely for the elusive muskie.  In fact, I like muskies so much I studied them during my Master’s degree and even had a blog detailing my work.  And if that wasn’t enough, I’m the Assistant Editor for the magazine of Muskies, Inc., which is a conservation angling organization dedicated to researching muskies and developing and promoting fisheries for this species across North America.  I’m a trained fisheries scientist and currently a PhD student at the University of Prince Edward Island (instead of explaining what I study, you can just go here to watch this YouTube video).  I was born in Chicago and grew up in Urbana, Illinois.  My home now is in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, where I live with my beautiful girlfriend.  We have two cats – Stanley and Phoebe (originally named Armani and Vogue by the shelter…).  I grew up in a home with a veritable zoo in the basement: bearded dragons, a leopard gecko, a ball python, corn snake, fox snake, red-eared sliders (turtles), tree frogs, anoles, Madagascar tomato frog, various fish species, and a tarantula.  But most of all, I love being in nature.
