I was born and raised in Dallas and have always been committed to making a difference in the lives of animals. I’m especially passionate about big cats and love observing and photographing them. I want to show everyone the beauty I see in each and every one. They can't speak for themselves so I hope my images make a difference in some way. I volunteer at In-Sync Exotics, a non-profit wildlife sanctuary dedicated to the rescue of neglected, abused or unwanted exotic cats. I'm on the Board of Directors for Texas Native Cats, an organization focused on education, outreach and improving the lives of our very important but often misunderstood native cats of Texas. I'm a certified Texas Master Naturalist and I volunteer at a local nature preserve, the Connemara Conservancy, where I help with the restoration of native habitat. I also serve on the Board of Directors for CREA, an organization dedicated to conserving critical habitat in the Panamanian rainforest, home to five different species of wild cats. I'm married to the most amazing man in the world and we have three rescue dogs, Barney, Boss and Lola. I'm currently documenting urban bobcats in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. You can check it out here.
