I was raised in New York City. Concrete and pigeons were my natural habitat. At one point my family dragged me out for 5AM bird watching in Central Park. The experience opened my eyes to many beautiful creatures which are our neighbors.

As a youth I took a formative trip to the tropics. I was completely awed by what I saw snorkeling. Since then I’ve been fascinated by the oceans. I sketch them, study them, dream about them, follow scientists on social media, look at remote operated submarine feeds on-line and see what divers are taking pictures of. There is so much to discover!

Life on this planet is remarkable. My curiosity for the natural world has inspired this work.

I began to notice that so many creatures are disappearing. It made me sad. I wanted to save the world. I can’t do it alone.
