Originally from New York USA currently living in the Sunshine state of Florida in the Tampa Bay area. My first trip to Africa was in 2009 when I visited Botswana and Zambia. My first trip to Sabi Sands South Africa was in 2011. This is where my true addiction began. I stayed at Londolozi Varty camp and fell in love with the people and the animals. Since then I have been back five more times and have already planned my return trip for August of 2018. I have written several blogs and enjoy sharing photos and experiences from my trips. Leopards and male lions are my favorite to photograph. At home I have my own little family including my black lion Myra and two wild dogs Max and Jack.
