I grew up in N.W. Indiana on Lake Michigan. As a kid I loved to camp and be in nature. Although my career has been in Health Care Administration I am also a photographer. I do mostly event photography but I have always been fascinated with macro photography of nature. I have recently purchased a macro lens for my camera and hope to capture some of the incredible images of the bug world most people never get to see. For the last 22 years Tampa, Florida has been my home.
