I bring a lifelong love of the environment to my participation and leadership with ASDJ since 2013. From childhood, I have known nature as a source of enrichment, solace and inspiration. I recall discovering the joy and art of photography; immersing myself in the shapes, tones and textures of the natural world. “Away from the angst of adolescence, I found a quiet sense of being at home and a feeling of wonder.” Following a 25 year career in photojournalism, I followed an insistent call of vocation, and now work as a chaplain within the transport industry. I love returning to the desert – and being with others as they delight in the transforming power of its spirit.
