I have always been a nature enthusiast with a fascination and love for wildlife as well as the night sky. Inspiring connection and protection of the natural world while preserving unique moments in nature is what I strive for in my photography. I hope that you are inspired by my images to get outside and enjoy the incredible wildlife and natural beauty of this world and the wonders of our night sky.
