I currently work as the Projects Manager for the Lake Cowal Foundation (LCF), a not-for-profit environmental trust whose primary goal is to protect and enhance Lake Cowal, a nationally significant wetland located 45 km north of West Wyalong, NSW.  The LCF and its project partners implement and manage a range of natural resource management initiatives within the Lake Cowal catchment, also delivering environmental education through the Lake Cowal Conservation Centre (LCCC).

My wife Michele, 3 children and I have a farm in the Lake Cowal/Clear Ridge area of West Wyalong, the main enterprise being winter cereal and canola cropping.  In addition, our family has operated a native tree and shrub nursery since 1995, working with farmers and various organisations on local revegetation and conservation projects.

My interest in photography goes back to my teenage years, but this dropped away up until about 2009 when reinstated by the rapid development of digital photography.  I am mostly involved in general nature photography and through my work inevitably end up taking a lot of bird images.  This is also augmented by the fact that the Lake Cowal region has 277 recorded bird species, most of which are wetland birds.  I am also interested in videography and drone imagery.  I am very supportive of Birdlife Photography, particularly because it is a participatory educational resource for all levels of bird enthusiast and photographer.
