I grew up in Atlanta. No one in my family owned cool cameras or wrote stories. Somewhere along the way I got interested in seeing the big world. After a few years teaching field science in national parks and writing and shooting on the side, I took a job as a travel editor with a national Time Inc publication where I worked alongside and learned from inspiring writers and photographers from around the country. Now I'm freelancing as writer, photographer, producer and, more recently, videographer. 

For over a decade I've collected portraits and interviews of people I meet. Find this ongoing journal at the 'Meeting People' link.

I live in Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge with my wife Christine. We spend most of our free time biking, hiking, kayaking and finding swimming holes in the Cascade Mountains.
