I am an amateur wildlife photographer living in Berkeley, California. I have been taking photos of animals since I was 7 (a long time ago). Hopefully I have improved since then! (If not me improving, at least shooting with current digital equipment beats shooting at ISO 10 which was the only slide film when I started!)

My main interests are whales, wild canids and birds. In my free time, I do research on North Pacific Right Whales (Eubalaena japonica), help with some research on Killer Whales, and serve as the volunteer webmaster for the IUCN Canid Specialist Group, a group of 70+ scientists from around the world who monitor the status of all wild canid species other than grey wolves. As an offshoot of this work, I started a group on Flickr called Field Guide: Wild Canids of the World which you should check out.

Several of my photos have been featured on wwww.ARKive.org and The Tree of Life web Project. I have also had photos published in various publications such as National Wildlife, the American Bird Conservancy annual report, Birding, iBird and several books (Maritimes Breeding Bird Atlas), and used by the South Africa National Museum (www.diversityexplorer.org).
