I shoot and edit both stills and video. At this time, I do not have mapping software. The bulk of my professional background is technical, having to do with Maritime and communications electronics. From 2004 to 2014, I sailed the world as Communications Electronics Officer in support of oceanographic expeditions, onboard the R/V Knorr, with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Originally from Bucks County, PA, we moved to SW Florida in 2015 after an illness, to recover and develop a new career path. During the past several years, I have been shooting still photos for the Sun Media Group in Charlotte County. I became interested in news videography, and at one point I was working with NBC2 News in Ft. Myers. My work has been featured in all of the Sun Newspapers as well as in their culture magazine “Harbor Style." I held a Florida Real Estate Sales Associate License back in 2008, before the market collapsed, and I recently completed an online real estate drone video production course. In addition to the FAA Part 107 remote pilot license, I hold an Amateur "Extra" class HAM license, a General Radiotelephone Operator License (GROL) with Ship Radar Endorsement, and a Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS) Operator Maintainer license. I also hold a Florida class "A" commercial drivers license, and a TWIC card. See my newspaper stills portfolio at
