I'm a non-vocational "lifestyle" photographer based in Wyoming. 

I'm drawn to many things... expressive faces, interesting landscapes, old buildings, colorful food. Sometimes the simplest everyday things catch my eye.

I think chance encounters are what I love most about photography... being able to capture a moment (or a feeling) which may never pass my way again.

Other interests include reading, gaming, finance, plant-based cooking and attending festivals/concerts with my family.

I love french press coffee, stout beer, salted sunflower seeds and binge watching Netflix. I'm a true redhead, southpaw, Army veteran, realist and free thinker. Common sense over hysteria. Facts over media-generated fiction.


Rise free from care before the dawn, and seek adventures. Let the noon find thee by other lakes, and the night overtake thee everywhere at home. There are no larger fields than these, no worthier games than may here be played.
— Henry David Thoreau
