I have been an explorer my whole life.   From a very young age I’ve looked for the road less traveled, marveling in those experiences that took me the farthest from where I had been before.

  • Extensive inner exploration via meditation and mindfulness exploring the far reaches of awareness and intention;
  • Five year 40,000 mile global sailing adventure covering over 50 countries and 5 continents;
  • Eco Challenge competition of 300 miles of running, biking and horseback with Team Nike;
  • Exploration of many peoples, cultures, life forms, oceans, seas, mountains and caves, mapping areas never before seen by man;

Global exploration by surfing, sailing, rafting, running, diving, biking, to name a few.

I started my camera education at the age of eight on a 1920’s Ica A.G. Icarette 501 with black and white 120 roll film.  I shot photos on camping, rafting and hiking trips through the lower 48 of the US and Canada.  As I composed my subject matter, what fascinated me most was the dance between the world, the light, and the use of angle and time of day to find the perfect nexus of perspective, time and location to witness the world.  To this day I am in love with that dance.

  • The meditative stillness of mind required to listen to our world and allow it to share its secrets;
  • The dance of creativity between the world and the framing, composition, shapes, lighting, and so many other parts of the available choices of perspective;
  • The culmination of the dance in that moment when the shutter captures the moment.

I love the dance and I hope you do too.  Within the walls of this photo gallery I hope you find something that lights an emotion, a memory or sense of awe that will make your day a more satisfying one.
