Out & About, Westways Magazine, July/August, 2014

It’s always fun to write for Westways Magazine — great information, great photos and fun subjects. They sent me to places that I have always wanted to explore, especially the Korean Friendship Bell in San Pedro. What a lovely symbol of peace, art and culture!

“Dogs of All Faiths” at the Cathedral, The Tidings, July 17, 2014

Yappy Hour at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. I asked the pastor, Msgr. Kostelnik, why not cats? After all…it’s a CAThedral… This was a photographer’s dream job….

Birders Among the Books, SoCalWild, May, 2014

This is the kind of school I wish I attended when I was an elementary student. Leo Politi School is near downtown Los Angeles but you wouldn’t know it when you are wandering around its 5,000 sq. ft. native plant garden.

Coyote Lady Turns 101 Years Old, The Eastsider LA, March, 2014

Who wouldn’t enjoy sitting down chatting with a feisty, spunky and opinionated 101-year-old conservationist? Just don’t try to take her photo!

Have Camera, Will Snap, SoCalWild, February, 2014

Behind every great wildlife photo is a photographer with hundreds of duds. I tagged along with two camera trappers up in the Los Angeles Forest to see how they are using technology and art to create wonderful images of local wildlife.

Finding Flutterers in Ventura, SoCalWild, November 2013

As the rock star of the butterfly family, the migrating monarch is a beloved sight in SoCal. Let’s hope we keep seeing these flappers.

Bold Birds, SoCalWild, November, 2013

I’m a sucker for brilliant wildlife photography — not to mention energetic and passionate photographers like Jennifer MaHarry whose recent exhibition “Nature LA: Birds of Prey” features local SoCal raptors.

‘Saints and Martyrs’ at the Getty, The Tidings, Sept. 2013

I love visiting the Getty and it’s so fun to interview curators like Liz Morrison who are so enthusiastic about their subject matter.

Galleries of Change, Arroyo Monthly, October 2013

Home remodeling nightmares? Not when the Autry National Center decided to change up two of their galleries. I enjoyed discovering how the designers think when it comes to large public spaces.

Critter Migration, Westways Magazine, October 2013

Critter Corner! I wish I could write one of these every month! There is so much wildlife to see in SoCal every DAY!!
