A runner with a photography problem or a photographer with a running problem. Working as an engineer, living at the beach near Los Angeles. I've developed a bad habit of creating or organizing collaborative projects with sometimes a few and sometimes hundreds of virtual strangers. A quick search for Free the Dune, The Day of the Donut or the Operation Jack Marathon will lead you to three of these quixotic efforts. Past projects include organizing 2-3 teams for the Hermosa 24 ultramarathon & relay on the soft sand of the beach, raising money for cancer research to honor my mom and of course The Icebox Book. These fine art photography books can soon be in your hands, and will proudly rest atop your other coffee table books. Give it a shot.
