I love to travel, especially to view wildlife and play golf. I have spent the last decade traveling to some amazing places and have taken some great photos along the way. I really enjoy learning as much as I can about the places and people I see in my travels. I also enjoy observing and learning about some of the beautiful wildlife I see. I find the best stories come from the locals and I purposely seek out these folks. I look forward to future travels and will post some of the stories and photos along the way!

It is hard to overstate the adrenaline that hits you when you step through bamboo to find yourself mere feet from these amazing creatures, knowing that if they could trample you if they wanted. The gorillas did not seem to care that we were there and allowed us to watch as they ate and played.

Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda

A cute video we took in Rwanda of two juvenile Mountain Gorillas wrestling.  We were trekking through Volcanoes National Park in northwestern Rwanda.  There are only around 7 groups of mountain gorillas left in Rwanda, so they are still extremely endangered.
