I became fascinated with birds around the age of six and haven't looked back since. I am an active member of the Maine Young Birders Club, frequently participate in field trips with my local Audubon chapter, and received a scholarship to attend the National Audubon Society's Hog Island young birders camp in 2019.
During the 2019 Young Birder of the Year contest I placed second in the Illustration module, and for the 2021 contest I am entering in the Photography, Illustration, and Field Notebook modules. Over the years my photography skills have grown significantly and after teaching myself to shoot in Manual mode, I have pretty much pushed my current camera (Nikon Coolpix P900) to its limit and decided to step up a notch by purchasing a professional-quality DSLR and lens.
I want to give a HUGE thank you in advance to anyone that would like to support me and my passion for birding and photography by contributing to this fundraiser. I couldn't do it without you!
