Raised in Hawaii, I have appreciated the natural world from an early age. My love and enthusiasm for adventure led me towards climbing and photography as a passion and profession. My photo endeavors began while living and studying in interior Alaska in 1999. I have been fortunate enough to take my cameras throughout North America, South America and Europe while on adventures and on contract. I am a climbing guide and educator for Colorado Mountain School, The National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and Colorado Mountain College. When I'm not gallivanting around, I can usually be found in Boulder, CO.
