I am retired from Collins Radio/Rockwell Collins (April 2006). I was employed there for 40 years. I led a group at the airport that designs, documents and installs avionics equipment into airplanes. I have been involved with Cedar Rapids Audubon since 1989. I have served as president for several of those years and also on the board in other positions. I am currently the president (2011) /treasurer and membership chairman. I also do volunteer work with the Linn County Conservation department doing bird classes and studies of species in some of the parks. I have also been involved with the DNR doing Henslow’s Sparrow studies since 2004 at Pleasant Creek Lake State Recreation Area and also moth studies in state parks. Since 1989 I have increased my photography activity a tremendous amount, primarily with flowers and birds until 1994 when I started to concentrate on butterflies and dragonflies. Since 2002 I have also starting black lighting for moths. I also do a lot of landscaping in my backyard including ponds.
I am also the butterfly coordinator for the Butterflies and
Moths of North America website.
