Born and raised on Long Island (New York), I have been exploring the wilds of the Island for over 30 years. As the owner of Fish Guy Photos, I am a wildlife photographer, writer and lecturer who enjoys bringing public awareness to the diverse wildlife that calls the island home. My passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led me to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton and I currently manage the Marine Sciences Center at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University.
An award-winning member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America and the New York State Outdoor Writers Association, I am a freelance writer for several fishing and wildlife related publications. Although my work tends to focus on marine life, everything in the natural world is fair game.
