About Me

The Native Plantsman

... let nature be your teacher. - William Wordsworth

In many ways, my love of nature defines who I am as a person. I am a nurseryman & horticulturist by trade. My wife & I also own a nature photography business (New Leaf Photography). Together this allows me to indulge my love of plants, nature, and photography on a daily basis.


I am fascinated with the critical relationships that exist between plants, animals, the environment, and human influences.


My goal is to foster greater respect and appreciation for nature, native plants, and the ecosystems around us.
