Senegalese environmental activist Baba Dioum famously said:


"In the end we will conserve only what we love,

we will love only what we understand,

and we will understand only what we are taught."


I cannot paint. And I cannot compose beautiful music. 

But I know how to use nature's own light as my brush when communicating the feelings

and moods that I cannot find the words for.

I use that brush to inspire people to open their eyes for the wonders of nature.

And to bring out nature’s wonderful aesthetic value. 

Something we need more of in our world. 

If I can inspire someone to feel something positive for nature,

I'm certain that nature and all its amazing creatures will have a brighter future.

A boundless curiosity, a deep passion for aesthetics, a nerdy approach to gear and plain old fun are what drive
