I am a special ed teacher, co-teaching Science and Social Science in an Anne Arundel County school. I am also a professional photographer and writer with three published books on the Chesapeake, including "Chesapeake Wildlife: Stories of Survival and Loss." My writing and photography has been published over 1,000 times in books, magazines, and newspapers. I also sell my work at art shows in the Baltimore/Washington/Ocean City, Md. area.
