I'm originally from Allentown, PA and have roots in Brooklyn, NY. I'm a wildlife biologist/herpetologist in sunny Southern California now! In case you were wondering, herpetology is the study of herpes, syphilis and other diseases that make penises and vaginas fall off...It's definitely not the study of amphibians and reptiles some pseudointellectuals would like you to believe.

I also have a photography website of my own! Check it out here:


Some of my images are with stock agencies, but I also license many of them myself too. Drop me a line. I'll make you an offer you can't refuse....well, okay, you can refuse it if you want, but I'd be sad.


My Dad is the most amazing man I've ever known. I'm so proud of him and so proud to be his son. I miss him very much. He died on May 22, 2010 from complications of multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer. He was one of my best friends and had a profound effect on my life and on my photography. When he was 10 years old, he said he wanted to become a herpetologist when he grew up. After a stay in the hospital as a teenager, he decided to become a physician. Many years later, his son became a herpetologist. We shared a tremendous amount of joy in our lives and I will always have those memories.

A tremendous amount of research is being conducted to develop additional treatments for multiple myeloma, many of which have been spear-headed by The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. Donations can be made here:

    "THJL" makes me laugh with all of his clever captions and funny titles. It's a good thing he's so funny or I would be sick with jellousy. Not only because he finds the MOST AMAZING subjects to photograph, but also because he captures them with extreme skill. Spend the time, go through each page. You won't be dissapointed, I promise!"
