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. I am currently in the process of setting up my website at If you have any comments about my site, please feel free to drop me an e-mail. My photography equipment consists of a Canon 60D, Canon 100mm macro lens and a Canon MR14EX ring lite.
