I think this where I’m supposed to brag about all of my accomplishments and talents as an outdoor adventure and nature photographer. Problem is, that’s not my style. Yes, I’m published and I’ve worked with a whole bunch of awesome editorial and commercial clients, some of which are named below. With any luck, I’ll keep selling images and landing commercial gigs. So, instead of a big ol’ self promotional bio, I’m just gonna tell you a few things about me and hope that it’ll give you some insight into my personality, and what makes me tick as a human being.

I’m married to Melissa and we have a rad son named Jackson. We love to travel, preferring to take road trips rather than stuff into a huge metal tube with wings filled with strangers. Some of our favorite places are Cape Kiwanda, the Tetons, the Sonoran Desert, the San Juan Mountains and Montana. Well, at least the western side. Some places we’ve yet to visit but that are high on the list are British Columbia (Whistler! Squamish! Retallack Lodge!), Alaska, New Zealand, Nepal and Patagonia.

I’ve lived in six states, including a few months in a single-wide behind a rowdy bar where I learned how to shoot pool with a bunch of drunk Marines. I was 10. I currently call Moab home which is kind of like winning the outdoor photographer/mountain biker lottery. I’ve been riding mountain bikes for 28 years and peering through a viewfinder for almost 20. I started with Canon and clung to it for a long, long time until I was lured to Sony by superior sensors and image quality.

I’ve been a mall worker, a stockbroker, a cop, an author, a photography workshop leader and a gallery owner. I am most proud of being a dedicated husband, a proud father, a reliable friend and a hard worker.

I think potatoes are a perfect food, drink wheat beer, eat dark chocolate and believe I was put on this earth to savagely destroy breakfast burritos. I get grumpy when we don’t camp enough. I’ve broken lots of bones, most of which were my own. Pugs may not be the best trail dogs, but they are in fact the best dogs. Period.

There you have it. That’s me, in a nutshell. If you think we’d work well together, shoot me an email. I’m always stoked to work with badass clients on badass projects.
