I am a software engineer and photographer from the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania, USA. I've contributed to the English Wikipedia since June of 2003. I've been taking pictures since I got my first digital camera in 2004. I enjoy all types of photography, including architecture and landscapes, but find nature photography to be the most useful for Wikipedia articles. I'm passionate about photography. I enjoy taking beautiful images and making large prints. My favorite location to photograph is the wilderness of Alaska. My pictures have been published in a number of books, magazines, web sites, and other locations. I believe we should strive for the goals of the four freedoms.
