My Bio I started shooting four years ago and enjoy the natural world and all it has to offer--photographically speaking. You can usually find me out before dawn on weekends on some remote trail looking for that one special, usually elusive, shot. My first volume of photos, "Elusive Light," is a compendium of pictures taken between 2004 and 2007. It is primarily a book of pictures taken at various national parks and historic sites. My goal is to visit every national park in this country and capture that "one shot" that tells the tale of that place...

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
national parks that I plan on visiting next Spring. I am doing a seventeen day road trip and shooting at twelve parks. It will encapsulate Utah, Wyoming, Montana and the Dakotas.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Ladysmith Black Mambazo--My favorite group of all time; their rhythms are created a capella. You may know them as the group that backed up Paul Simon on his "Graceland" album. Listen to "Homeless" from that album; it's haunting.
E.L. Doctorow--One of the greatest fiction writers of the 20th Century. "Ragtime" is my all-time favorite book.
Christopher Moore-He's written about ten books and they all fall in the "hard-to-describe" category. "A Dirty Job" is hilarious! A great read!
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
"The Stupidest Angel" by Christopher Moore. An easy one-day read that will have you rolling with laughter. His command of the written word is amazing...


"A Night to Remember" by Walter Lord. Written in 1955, it is an excellent minute-by-minute dissection of the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912. His prose puts you ON the ship as it's sinking (a full decade before Capote's "In Cold Blood" did the non-fiction novel). I read this book 30 years ago and still revisit it now & then.
