Fellow at Cultural programmer, radio producer and writer, editor of books and goodness knows much else, student of nature-- still fascinated after all these years. Rescue dogs and cats were my adult live-in companions; as a child I had local tortoises, which I returned to the woods always. I especially love water environments (both fresh and salt) and their dwellers, eastern woodlands environments and the animals that live there, birds, reptiles and amphibians, and the good things that happen between human beings and animals.
