My best subjects are agriculture, desert travel, BLM/Federal lands issues, and southwestern destinations.  I’ve covered Agriculture as a freelancer since the 1980’s with regular features in California Farmer.  For the last couple of years, I’ve worked for AgNet Media, mainly on Citrus Industry both online and print editions.

Presently, my biggest project is The Western View, a weekly 350 word, 2.5 minute commentary for Farm City Newsday and Ag radio stations. I’ve been at it since 2014.  I’ve posted some of them on a blog site at www.therealwesternview.com.

I’ve written/photographed articles for dozens of online and print media publications, and wrote/photographed Desert Dancing, a travel journal published by Hunter in 2000.

I live on a small hobby farm east of Clovis, California.
