I have 30 years of experience with state and federal agencies and my own consulting business as a visual information specialist, environmental educator, and interpreter of natural and cultural resources. I enjoy sharing my love of the natural environment and human interactions with it, cultural history, and photography with people of all ages. My work has involved presenting programs at schools, nature centers, museums, parks, etc. and leading day hikes and multi-day wilderness and residential programs for students, families and adults. I have also presented several types of environmental education programs for teachers. Much of my work involves graphic design, photography, writing and editing for exhibits, signs, articles, brochures and other publications. This background gives me a great deal of experience explaining technical, scientific information through words and pictures in ways that make learning fun for visitors to public lands as well as elementary through college age students. I enjoy digital photography, desktop publishing and graphic design and love teaching people how to use point-and-shoot or digital single-lens reflex cameras, and helping them develop skills to enhance their images with photo editing software or how to combine their photos with text and graphics using desktop publishing software.
