I worked as a television news reporter and writer for many years, most recently in Florida. I recently completed my Ph.D. so nature has been a great escape from a rewarding but rigorous program of study. My love of Florida, with all its amazing flora and fauna, is a passion I am eager to share with my family, friends, and followers. Inspired by great writers, I try to tell stories that find humor and inspiration in daily life and the beauty around us. Working in television for so many years, I also appreciate a great shot, a captured moment, or a frame in time that catches your eye and touches your soul.
