Canada is an amazing place. Documenting it through paint (as an artist) and image (as a photographer) and recording it (through the written word) has long been a life passion for me.
I personally love new challenges, meeting new people and seeing new places.
I travel yearly in the north......"just to take it all in" and record it through creative means.
You cannot avoid the exploration of culture and history through the pursuits of art and science.
We have a fascinating history and throughly modern present and an exciting future ahead.
As Pierre Teilhard de Chardin once said ..."everything is the sum of it's past and...nothing is comprehensible except through its history. 'Nature' is the equivelent of 'becoming."
I am an experienced environmental scientist with a lot of job and field experience within industry and also privately contracted research.
Particular skills are that of understanding of Boreal ecology.
