My interest in photography began a number of years ago when part of my job at the US Bureau of Commercial Fisheries was taking photographs of fish species we were studying. Not long after, my experiences in the lab included macro and micro photographs of organisms that were part of a research project.

Today my interests lie in taking photographs of small objects including flowers, rocks and minerals, and very small animals. I am particularly interested in fine structures that present good images.
