I recall, at about 6 years of age, I would follow my mother around begging to look at the family photo albums. She wanted me to go play. I wanted to study the photographs. In elementary school, while other kids were running around the play ground, I wanted to be in the library reference room absorbing National Geographic Magazines. On Sunday evening, CBS, after 60 minutes, the intro to Mutual Omaha’s Wild Kingdom would blaze across my television and inside my pumpkin head, I knew I wanted to travel the world with the purpose of filming and photographing nature and wildlife. It’s taken me awhile to really pursue it but we should never ignore the tiny seeds of destiny.
