Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, my passion for photography began mid-way through my college career. Within two weeks I knew this would be my chosen profession. So began my study of black and white photography from f/64 West Coast photographers Ansel Adams, Brett Weston, Don Worth, Jack Welpot and John Sexton.
An avid backpacker since childhood, I combined my love for the outdoors with the pursuit of my visual expression of the natural landscape. All images herein were faithfully taken as represented by nature.
