During nearly 30 years of practicing medicine in New Hampshire and Vermont, it has also been my honor to serve as a member, Webmaster, and photographer for the Conservation Commission in my rural community of Chesterfield New Hampshire. The commission has been the leading force for the preservation of our town’s open and wild spaces. We have worked to make the natural treasures of Chesterfield accessible through the development and maintenance of an extensive trail system. Many of my images have been collected during years of exploration and trail work in the Monadnock region and southern Vermont. Although I have chosen to focus my work on our region, I have also enjoyed wandering back roads and trails throughout New England, the Atlantic coast, and the Northeastern United States.
