Following a career of teaching mathematics in both Baltimore City and Howard County in my home state of Maryland, I took an adventurous step and began teaching for DoDDS (Department of Defense Dependent Schools) in Asia. My first four years were in Daegu, Korea, and the following nine occurred in Okinawa, Yokosuka, and Zama, Japan. This school year I made the move to Europe, and I am now teaching in Rota in southern Spain.
Being a math teacher is my vocation, my passion, and my reason for getting out of bed each morning. However, photography, provides me with a sense of purpose and relaxation during those non-student hours. Recording the wonders of Asia, Europe, Australia, and Africa has been both a joy and a challenge.
My camera! While I travel, my faithful Canon is my trusted companion. She keeps me company on long walks and helps me meet interesting people along the way. This small black box has provided me with many fond memories of the places and people I have encountered throughout the world. She has never let me down. 🙂
The links below refer to a few experiences over the years that have had an influential impact on my life. They either relate to situations I have lived through, special people I have encountered, or stories that have motivated me. Each in its own way has contributed something special to my life.
