It started off as normal as could be. Then I fell in love with mountain biking and trail running, found peace on a Jon boat, got confused and spent a decade in higher education, tried my hand at building hospitals for a few years, and now, well, now I’m chasing dreams, hiking in the woods, wading mountain streams, ankles deep in the sand of coastal tides, high atop mountain crests, deep in foggy valleys, just pushing buttons and sharing images!

Whether it’s in the cold waters of a mountain stream, on the rugged crest of an Appalachian mountain, or standing in the rhythmic surf of a southern coastline, out “there” is where I’m at my best. Out there is where I want to be. I do it because I love it. The reward for me is experiencing the many things a landscape photographer goes through to capture the natural world when environmental conditions are at their most dynamic. I really appreciate your visit and please do come back as often as you like--the invitation is open. Cheers!
