"I am dedicated to using my art to call out humankind's contribution to the demise of wildlife and natural resources. We are wholly responsible for mass extinction and degradation of the planet, through greed, ego and (willful) ignorance. "

I donate money, art and time to various worldwide wildlife and planetary conservation causes. Some of my more passionate causes are the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Wolf Conservation Center and our own local causes such as the Seneca Park Zoo (Rochester, New York) Butterfly Beltway Project, Project Scion (our own construct dedicated to greening the inner city) and my work as a Landscape Consultant to the Towns of Penfield and Victor, New York, where I review commercial landcape plans and advise on revisions geared towards preservation of habitat and proper use of plantings.
