Thanks for being curious enough to check out my profile. It is a privilege to be out photographing nature. My main interest is nudibranchs, followed by cetaceans and all awesome marine life. I curate Eastern Pacific nudibranchs for iNat and I'm co-editor of iNat's California Sea Slugs Guide ( I've been included as a co-author on a paper by nudibranch expert Dr. Jeffrey Goddard, and I'm currently (2019-2021) writing lightweight articles introducing California nudibranchs for the Morro Bay National Marine Estuary Program and the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve (

My best-of wildlife photos reappear on Flikr, where they are freely available under a Creative Commons license, so they show up in random places on the Internet and occasionally in print. Recently, two of my photos were used in "America's Marine Sanctuaries: A Photographic Exploration" -Smithsonian Books, 2020. Woo hoo!

Above water, I use a Canon 7Dii with 100-400mm lens; underwater, I use my trusty Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS6 or Olympus TG-6.
