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.
