I'm an explorer and adventurer specializing in obscure and little known pockets of wilderness in the western Mojave Desert.
My work has been published in the Los Angeles Times and across a broad spectrum of media both nationally and internationally.
I bring a fine art, landscape aesthetic to trail races, showcasing not only your runners but the epic places they run. Interested? Send me an email and we'll discuss your race.
I'm attracted to the overlooked, the obscure. I'm not a tourist, I explore. I want what is beyond the overlooks and the pullouts, beyond well-traveled trails.
I photograph the in between.
WHERE IT BEGAN
This is where the hunger woke for what was unknown and hidden in folds of the earth. This was where secrets unfurled like flowers in tumbled basalt and lithic scatter. This, where furtive water pooled and ancients gathered to absorb its minerality and the knowledge of stones. Where small fires in shallow alcoves whispered amber phrases and stained the ceilings with their memories. They have vanished but their fragments murmur.
This is where I began to understand - where the earth was torn and rain gathered in hidden pools.
I go to the wild for the wild's sake. I sit and I listen and I learn. I touch things, smell them, taste them, learn their textures. I tread silently in the forests and softly across the desert floor, observing and reveling in the great silence. I get lost in the vastness of canyon and mesa. I don't bring my world with me, I let the wilderness in. The tended campgrounds, groomed trails, the carefully curated information signs are not for me. I love the wild for its very nature. Give me an isolated ridge and an outcrop of rock and the sough of wind and I'm content. If you look for me, look not in the tame lands.
