Spotted Dog Media?  It seems I have always had spotted dogs in my life. The first was Sounder, a deaf Dalmatian rescued on a whim because "she might be a little hard of hearing" from a local animal shelter. Next came Bailey, a handsome English Setter who lived 15 wonderful years and taught me so much about patience, love and compassion. Then came my boy Ranger, the most photogenic, energetic, and loving companion, rescued from Southwest English Setter Rescue. Three years ago sweet and beautiful Riley entered my life, also rescued from Southwest English Setter Rescue. It has been an absolute joy watching her blossom. All of these precious pups have kept me active and exploring, and most importantly OUTSIDE, the place I find my peace and inspiration.

I support conservation efforts through storytelling with compelling photographs and video.

It is my greatest hope that the work on this site inspires you to get outside and enjoy and protect this incredible place we all call home.
