When I was a kid I loved watching fireflies blink and light up dark nights with their secret messages. I never dreamed that some day I'd be in a deep sea submersible watching ocean animals flashing and glowing...or that I'd be lucky enough to spend time with penguins, watch a whale being born, release a rescued and rehabilitated seal, or kayak with sharks.  I certainly never dreamed that I'd be lucky enough to write about all those animals and experiences! Animals, the ocean, nature, science, and discovering as much as I can about each -- that's what I love. I'm fortunate enough to have a job that lets me discover more every day and share those discoveries with kids.
