I strive to capture active living: The beauty, the grit, the quiet, the extreme and the messiness. Whether the photo is painstakingly constructed or a blind grab shot, the final image is fresh, authentic and memorable. 

I studied photography at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, then moved on to shoot adventure sports in Aspen, Colorado.  From there, I landed among the majestic mountains and river valleys of Livingston, Montana.  Now, I've come full-circle back to my roots in Traverse City, Michigan.

My work led me from the rice paddies of Vietnam, through the jungles of Nicaragua and aboard a Chilean navy patrol boat to Cape Horn. My favorite adventures continue to be travels taken with my wife Debbie, daughter Genessa and son Wylie.
