Wow, it’s been a while since I did one of these, let’s see if I remember how to do this. As some of you know, last year was pretty wild for me. In the spring my relationship of 3 years ended. Even though it was hard, her and I knew it was the right thing to do for both...

Even after I draft an outline of things I want to talk about or mention, starting is always the hardest part. I’m not even talking about the physical act of writing, it’s more like, where the fuck do I begin? I want to get into a topic that I feel gets glossed over or...

Preface: I originally had the idea to make this blog about my final 21 days in Denver but I’m going to open it up and write about my 3.5 years there and what led up to leaving the place behind and starting down a path of minimalism while trying to live a life with purp...

I initially intended to shoot the project for a longer period of time but life is unpredictable. The idea was spawned out of a desire to pick up my camera in Denver. For quite a while, I've felt artistically uninspired here. I always found myself traveling to other cit...

So it’s that time of year to look back and reflect on all that has happened over the last 365 days. This year has been filled with a lot of ups and some serious downs. As some of you know, at the end of 2016, December 5th to be exact, I fell 22ft ending up in a Memphis...

The reason for the trip was to drive a Uhaul from Pueblo Colorado to Southern Oregon and It took place in March. At that point it had been 4 months of sitting on the couch recovering from the accident. My two friends that I'm extremely fortunately to have, Lakshmi and...

These photos come from a trip I went on 4 years ago. The starting point was Minneapolis MN, an the ending was Washington State. A total of around 1700 miles. A pretty big undertaking for my first attempt at riding trains. Looking back at these photos and thinking about...

A few weeks ago I found myself in Detroit for the second time. This time specifically for photography. Before jumping into the story I want to update you on my condition. As you could have already guessed, things have been going great in the recovery department. I’d gu...

For the life of me, I can’t figure out why this is the hardest blog to find motivation for. It’s a story of triumph over tragedy. The following trip to Memphis would unknown to me then, alter the rest of my life. In the first week of December 2016, I was invited to Mem...

Below is a set of quick scan accidental double and triple exposures from 2015. It's been a long time since I even relooked at these, but I'm really happy I chose to revisit them.  They were made on Kodak Gold 200 between Chicago, Moab, and while riding freight train th...

The title pretty much sums up this whole thing. For those that aren't hip to whats going on, we can safely just assume this was a short trip to hangout with people I don't get to see that often. The short trips take place between the Southern part of Oregon, and then d...

This photo was taken back in September of 2013 in my favorite city, San Francisco. Leading up to this specific climb I was in a mental space of trying to climb the biggest things possible. Some friends and I drove down to the Bay from Ashland Oregon to check out the an...

The following took place during the month of August on my latest trip to Chicago. The whole reason I was in the Chicagoland area was due to my girlfriend’s brothers wedding. I can honestly say every aspect of this trip went to perfection and I couldn’t be happier. Meet...
