I am a native of Charlotte and grew up in the Cotswold area. Playing in the woods that were later developed into Randolph Middle School, I developed a close connection to and great respect for the natural world. My first video is of my Charlotte backyard wildlife habitat. I'm working with a group on a project to certify the greater Charlotte region as a Community Wildlife Habitat, in partnership with NCWF and NWF. My second video is one I put together in support of Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation. I'm especially interested in preserving and expanding the County's green space through nature preserves, neighborhood parks and greenways. All pictures were either taken by me, used with permission, or found on Microsoft Clip Art & Images. Music used with permission.
