A successful image is more than a bunch of organized pixels of varying densities; it must convey your story.

Kimberly and I are the proud parents of three daughters and one very special grandson (so far). I am a passionate advocate for medically complex children and patients needing specialized care.
I am honored to serve the children of California's Great Central Valley and the Central Coast at Valley Children's Healthcare www.valleychildrens.org
I was raised in Long Island (Kings Point), New York and the San Joaquin Valley (Fresno and Clovis), California, and am now living between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the San Joaquin River, surrounded by the many wonders of nature.
Yosemite National Park is to the North, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks are to the East, and the great Pacific is to the West.
I find great joy in the outdoors and mountains, where I practice my other great passions: wildlife and nature photography, hiking and biking.
