Through a long series of events, some unfortunate, I have found myself where I am now. But then, we can all say that now can’t we? If when I was ten you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would not have said a video producer / photographer. Of course not. I would have said an astronaut. Or maybe a clown.
But once I realized clowns were creepy and the astronaut thing didn’t pan out, both to my parent’s relief, I found myself bored and with a camera in hand. And I’ve never looked back. I love the outdoors, and I love capturing images.
I have been an active caver since 2005, including acting as Chair to the Wasatch Grotto. I have been a backpacking guide, outdoor gear photographer (for companies such as Black Diamond), and worked on feature films. I have set foot and videoed on every continent but Antartica (just wait!), have lived in Europe, slept in mud huts in Africa, shattered many lenses, been chased by baboons, ridden a camel, and herded goats.
