In a nutshell: I'm primarily a found-object travel photographer, inspired by the eye-snatching discoveries I make in the forest, among the unexpected appearances of wildlife, or witnessing the power of the ocean. The resulting imagery evokes the intimate beauty and wonder I felt at the moment of discovery. Power and peace, explosive action and gentle subtleties, all find their voices through my interpretations. I constantly challenge myself to further discover my deeper feelings, and evolving beliefs, through photographic exploration and expression.

Fresh bagels, new exhibits: I show my photographs at four restaurants in the Treasure Valley. Every time I sell an image, I donate 20% of the purchase price to the Idaho Foodbank. I believe in win-win situations, and this is one of my favorite ways to give back to the community. Here's where you can view my framed work and metal prints on exhibit:

Blue Sky Bagel Restaurants at 5517 W. State St., Boise (next to George's Cycles); 3161 E. Fairview, Meridian (behind Krispy Kreme); 407 W. Main St., in downtown Boise; and the BRC Plaza, at 12375 Chinden Blvd., Boise.

Found Object juxtaposition: I nearly caused a multiple-car pileup when I locked up the brakes after spotting this abandoned farmhouse and trees coated in hoarfrost (above left). Rarely has a scene screamed so hard at me to stop and capture it…until years later, I was confronted by these sunrise storm clouds over rock formations (above right).

Community journalism inspiration: I spent many years as a community journalist and photographer. My assignments and enterprise work ran the gamut from kayak races on the South Fork of the Payette River (above left), to a suspicious structure fire in Victor, Idaho (above right). Early on, capturing images of local news events helped pique my interest as a storytelling photographer and helped me evolve as a photographic artist.

What do you see? We all envision life in our own unique way from our own, unique points of reference. Enveloped in mystery, this image evokes many definitions of its name, each with its own personal emotion. What do you feel?
