For the past sixteen years of working to connect people to the place where they live – often through land protection or habitat restoration projects – I’ve had many opportunities to reflect on how we interact with the natural environment. I enjoy exploring through photography those edges that exist between human culture and natural habitat, in particular where nature resists being controlled. I am stopped by the sight of a sapling growing between the cracks of an old dam, or find myself caught in that moment when an old boat left onshore suddenly appears to be carried away by waves of wildflowers instead of water. The camera helps me recognize what I love about Maine and other parts of the Northeast, and about the diverse people who make this place their home.

This site is still under construction, but feel free to view what I've set up thus far!
