Originally from a small mountain town near Yosemite National Park, where all my first adventures and a love for nature began in the beautiful Sierra Nevada. I relocated to the Pacific Northwest about 18 years ago, where I was lucky enough to experience the joy of living on the Oregon Coast and then later moved to the vivacious City of Roses. I’m a nature photographer, artist, an outdoor enthusiast, and an U.S. Forest Service employee. Whether it be, backpacking, snowshoeing, climbing, kayaking, skydiving, rock hounding, or taking a dip into a hot spring, I simply enjoy it all.
