About me

Industry Education
Occupation Retired
Location Appleton, WI, United States
Introduction A self-taught artist and photographer, Tom retired from Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin in 2009 where he worked as the Director of Media Services for 25 years. He is the owner and co-founder of the Wisconsin Birding Network. He is a founding member of the Vietnam Dog Handler Association and was a Scout Dog handler in Vietnam in 1968. Carol is the former Executive Secretary and lobbyist for the Madison Audubon Chapter. She is retired from her seasonal job at Schmalz Country Gardens in Appleton. Prior to that she has held a number of interesting jobs not the least of which was the on-site guest liaison of a small resort in Jamaica.
Interests Our interests include travel with a strong emphasis on birding. We have traveled extensively in the U.S. and Canada but mainly enjoy south of the border adventures in Mexico, and Central and South America, either on our own or with a small group of birding friends. Now that we’re retired we hope to pursue traveling at a more leisurely pace if that’s possible.
