When I am not roaming around the hills with a big camera or on a sports assignment with a little camera, I work as an archaeologist for the USDA Forest Service.
In a previous life, from August 1993 - August 2004, I worked for The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park. I served as the Internet Operations Manager, where I created and maintained the Gallery's database-driven e-commerce website. In 2000, I resurrected the world-renowned Ansel Adams Gallery Photography Workshops, a 50 year-old workshop program that had been inactive for a decade.
I also served as an infantry (11B) and signal (25Q) NCO in the Army National Guard. I've deployed twice to Iraq (Baghdad 2005, Balad 2008) with CO A and B 1-184th Infantry Regiment and once to Afghanistan (FOB Tillman 2011) with CO A 422nd Expeditionary Signal Battalion.
My photographs have been made with a mixture of cameras and formats: 8x10, 7x17, 4x5, Nikon D800, Nikon D3, Nikon D4, Nikon D5, and a Leica M8. I continue to try different approaches.
I have a Bachelor's degree in anthropology and journalism from The University of Arizona as well a Master's in GIS.
I am available for freelance photo assignments in Phoenix and Tucson, AZ.
