About Me


    I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of ten I developed an interest in birding after watching Black-capped Chickadees feed on the seeds of giant Sunflowers in a neighbor's yard. Some years later, after obtaining a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering, I found myself in San Diego, California. I'm still here.

    Through the years I dabbled with photography, mostly landscapes. In 2001 I purchased my first digital SLR, the Canon D30, and my interest in photography became more serious. After taking a local bird photography workshop, I became passionate about photographing birds.

   Having retired at the end of 2013, I now travel often in search of birds to photograph and present Slideshows of my images to local San Diego organizations.

     Although you will find a few images of other nature subjects on my website, it's really all about the birds.
