Artist Statement

There are emotions deep within my soul provoked only through a connection with the natural landscape. These feelings inspire spiritual journeys that have shaped the direction of my life. The search for pastoral bliss where tranquility and chaos collide, creating a sensation of peace in my heart. Blind faith becomes feasible in an age of scientific reason. It is spiritual nourishment the reason why I wander in open spaces, a chance to touch the heart of the land, and discover its sublime character. I wait, and receive weather and light falling as gifts from above.

 

About Me

I was born in Seattle Washington in the late 80's and lived there till about five years old. After a job relocation for my dad we landed in Denver, Colorado. I grew up like a normal suburban kid and had a serious passion for Skateboarding. At 19 I moved to Australia with my family which is where I fell in love with Photography. After returning to the states I decided to attend Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs. A passion for solo backpacking grew over my time there, and shortly after graduating a friend introduced me to Ice Climbing. I lost sight of my camera for many years and just climbed, climbed, and climbed. Slowly the camera crept back into my life, where I find myself currently trying to make my landscape photography a full time business. Thanks for joining me on my journey!!
