I have been a waterfall hiker, chaser, seeker, junkie....you name it...for well over a decade now. When this all began, I chose waterfalls as the "carrot" to get me out hiking. Over time, my love for them has only grown for them. I have also developed a passion for photography, particularly waterfalls. Hiking to and seeing new waterfalls is now just the first step, as seeking them with perfect conditions to photograph is the next step. I have seen hundreds of them in my home state of North Carolina, as well as many waterfalls in South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. I have also been to see a few in Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Hawaii, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Maryland. I travel some for my job, and now I always try to visit at least a waterfall in every state I visited.. One day, I hope to have all 50 states represented.
