His work is fabulous, we always support him.
— Dave Simendinger, CEO Champlain Farms,
Williston, Vermont

Living close to the environment in rural Vermont allows me to create independently and without distraction. In addition to producing the finest maple products from our beautiful maple forest, I make my living from professional sleight-of-hand performances and freelance photography and framing. I have a BS in zoology and an MS in botany, served as a Peace Corps Volunteer and recruiter, was a high-school science teacher, conducted field surveys for the U.S. Forest Service, and taught ecology, photography, and magic courses with Elder Hostel Inc. for over ten years. I also circumnavigated the globe, solo cycled across the US and Canada, and was a natural history guide in many countries.
