I have been a lepidopterist since childhood and turned that hobby into a career almost twelve years ago when I began working at Butterfly World in Coconut Creek, FL as Senior Lepidopterist. From Butterfly World, I moved to Gainesville to work with the Florida Museum of Natural History's Butterfly Rainforest exhibit. I have since returned to Boca Raton, Florida where I continue to indulge in nature photography and specialize in Lepidoptera photography.
