Hmmm... who am I?
Well I really don't know the answer to that and as I am accellerating towards I've cleared 40, well, check back when I'm 50 60.

What I do though - I am a (old) undergrad student in Marine Sciences (Physics and Biology focuses) graduate student at the University of Connecticut Avery Point campus persuing an MSc PhD in Oceanography and a researcher with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's SMAST program.

Unfortunately all the school and research projects leave little enough time for my family, so my photography time suffers severely. Now that I'm Soon enough I will be through with my undergrad and on to the masters PhD program then I will have even less time!!

In photography I enjoy wildlife photography and the birds around here are a joy to study through the lens. Macro is second on the list, and of course family snapshots are a must.

Please enjoy the photos, and be sure to leave a comment or question.

    JrScientist says:

    "I am his son, and he looks at nature, but at a close angle. We went on photography hunts and I remember him seeing the Osprey and by the time I got there he was already taking pictures. He was the person who encouraged me to become a photographer in the first place. I have had loads of fun photographing and most of it is thanks to him.

    "A man of many talents, Eric, offers Flickr world a delightful stream of photographs. Nature, especially, birds are shown with expertise and concern in equal measures. Wonderful education for all of us.

    But it is not just techniques and knowledge of the subject that are the highlights. It is his genial personality overflowing with concern for the world around us that is the hallmark of his stream. Keep shooting, Eric."
