Alter Ego

May 10, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

So, it's a little confusing, but I have an alter ego. I was the Bird Nerd until I started diving. That's when I realized, I couldn't just be the Bird Nerd because I was photographing critters underwater. I was also into everything about nature: trees, insects, flowers, you name it, if it was outside, I loved it. 

Nature Nerd seemed to cover all of the bases. When I moved back home to Hampton Roads, I went through the Master Naturalist certification, something I'd always wanted to do, but I was becoming known in the community as a bird person. As a Community Outreach Coordinator, I was educating the public about birds, in the same fashion as I had for over a decade in Lynchburg. My star was rising and I was asked to become a contributor for the local paper in the capacity of a birding columnist, so I went back to being the Bird Nerd. 

After this, my artwork was accepted at a local gallery, Blue Skies Gallery, but they wanted to focus on my underwater photography because it was different. So in that capacity, I am the Nature Nerd. 

This split personality thing is confusing and for someone like me who has a marketing background, trying to figure out how to meld the two is tough. I have some Tumblr blogs and will link them here, but this will be where my articles for the paper will show going forward. 

So I hope you enjoy reading my blogs and columns. 

Get outside and happy naturing!
