I was raised on my family's spacious spread in rural Gasport, NY, and still live there to this day. In such an environment the outdoors naturally became one of my passions. I love fishing, hunting, camping, observing wildlife...just being outdoors! I have combined those loves with my love of writing as you can read from the various freelance articles linked-to below.

These articles all appeared in New York Outdoors News, a great bi-weekly magazine that offers a wide array of how-to/where-to articles and timely news about the outdoor scene in the Empire State. For more info about New York Outdoor News and to become a subscriber, visit www.nyoutdoornews.com
