The things I value most are woven into my photographs. The environment, access to wild spaces, freedom, adventure, social equity. If these are things that you also value, I hope you see them in my work. I deeply believe if you are passionate in what you love, you find a way to make that your work.
I have spent the majority of my career as a visual storyteller working with newspapers and non-profits. I have recently found inspiration in different ways to tell a story of the natural world and how we are all connected to it. When I'm not behind the lens, I'm roaming mountains on my bike, or navigating rivers and streams with my dogs. Protecting these resources have led me to telling stories about why they are important to us. I have always felt the need to explore. Whether it's a new landscape, a different culture, or social issue, or just as simple as a community tent revival or family event.
I love my work and the people who let me share part of their lives.
I have been making photographs for over 25 years . I learned the craft of storytelling while working as a newspaper photographer right out of college. I learned the fragility of life while volunteering for Operation Smile and other non-profits missions in third world countries. My camera has taken me places I would never have gone and I've been fortunate to meet some amazing people along the way.
