BiographyI am a "seasoned" citizen that enjoys family, friends, hunting, cooking, canoeing, music, photography, the north woods and life in general. We have property and a mobile home in northeast Wisconsin that is near the Peshtigo Flowage. Our wooded land has one corner cut off by a trout stream.
I am an avid Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers fan.
I have been a volunteer firefighter for over 30 years. I now leave the firefighting to the younger members but work as the department photographer as the occasion arises. My helmet number, when I wore a black helmet, was 43. Ergo, Pyro43.
Artist's StatementI enjoy photographing wildlife of all sorts.
I love macro photography.
