Albert Einstein once said...
"look deep into Nature and you will find the answer to everything!"
I have spent a lifetime doing just that. The exploration and experiences have been
magical, frightening, revealing, and dramatic to me. I have learned millions of things
about people, nature, our planet and the resources we so often take for granted in our
day to day lives. Stories develop. Fascinating stories told by the animals and habitat they
live in. It took me years to understand what was being said. It took even longer to
translate it into words and images that made sense to people I would talk to. It is at that
point that I became an interpretive marine research naturalist and
photographer/videographer for National Geographic and Animal Planet.
You never stop learning. It is almost an instinctual thing. Fascination leads to discovery
which results in new found knowledge. Sometimes that knowledge is handed to you,
sometimes it takes personal fortitude to gather it. I have been blessed with both
situations. My time at the University of Idaho back in the 1980s was a time of being
handed some aspects of my knowledge base, but was also a time of personal effort
brought on by some very talented instructors there. This was also a time of exploration
for me. Jobs with the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska working for Neil
Hagadorn and at Grand Canyon National Park under the tutelage of Erni Escalanti shaped
the way I saw the world and showed me some avenues toward relating to what I was
Being able to relate to what ever is happening eventually became the foundation of how
my presentations came to life. Life is funny. There are funny things going on all the time
around us and when someone like me draws your attention to those events...you laugh,
learn, and relate to it. That is what Nature Talks...are you listening? is all about; getting
you to see, hear, and learn from some of the everyday events that are happening all
around us. David Hume once wrote "beauty in things exists in the mind which
contemplates them." That is my goal, to get you to contemplate what is before you and
help you find the beauty that exists in all things. Welcome to my web site!
