I am a photographer from Upstate NY. I travel the country for work and one of my goals is to make it to every National Park, Monument & Landmark in this country before I expire. Off to a great start but there are many many more to go. I have 2 younger sisters and a 12 year old daughter who is the best part of my life. I have an unconditional love for animals and nature. I have a strong dislike for cruelty and negativity. I love being able to meet a wide variety new people and experience other cultures. I'm doing what I love to do and I've waited a long time to be able to do it. I take full advantage of every opportunity I have in life. And... other than the occasional cabin in the woods or my tent... I'm sick of staying in hotels.
