"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever."

In September 2011, the WSL made a stop in
Long Beach for the Quiksilver Pro New York.
I grabbed my camera and headed out on the LIRR
to capture some of my most favorite pictures.
This launched my ongoing series of surfers,
surfboards, and surf breaks.
In 2007, I watched the movie that changed my life ~ An Inconvenient Truth. On a mission to do my part to save the planet, I created a humor blog ~ The Green, The Bad and The Ugly ~ where I called out the ridiculousness of vegetables wrapped in styrofoam and plastic and talked about the cigarette butts, plastic bags and unmentionables we leave behind on beaches.
In 2012, I was invited by the Climate Reality Project to work with Al Gore and become an official Climate Presenter ~ a chosen group of passionate environmentalists who are trained to give the same slide show in An Inconvenient Truth to audiences all over the world.
