On a recent visit to Puebla, Mexico, we took some cooking classes to learn the traditions of Mole, Chile en Nogada, and Tortillas hechos a manos.

As a kid, I was told tales of grand kayaking adventures that my parents and their friends went on. Orca wales, deep sea fishing, midnight mice running through tents, percolating coffee, navigating tides, and leaving the known world behind.Read More
It’s probably not where you’re thinking. You’re probably thinking of somewhere east, near Key West, or something just straight south, near Laredo.Read More
I took one picture in Iceland.Read More
An intersection of two competing human interests. Our dumping grounds for the chewed up and rotten souls forever rejected from attaining the rank and file elite managers, owners, and promoters of a new urban order. A breeding ground for the juvenile and sanguine heirs to the Throne of tomorrow’s problems. The purgatory to await the judgement of metropolitan demigods.Read More
People talk a lot of “spiritual experiences” while travelling. I firmly believe that when someone describes their trip as a spiritual experience, it means they found good food and don’t want to share it with you. But I’m here to share. So let’s start with food.Read More
I could feel the car daring me to go just a little faster. I skipped second and shifted straight into 3rd gear as I descended onto the freeway ramp. It held the road with a confidence so strong that your feet began to absorb it through the pedals.Read More
Bretzen (pretzels), beer, and crusty pork; in that order, are the things that excite me about Germany. Crispy, salty, buttery and chewy pretzels. The kind that give Auntie Anne nocturnal orgasms at night. Twist, rip, and let your teeth do the dirty work to make a meal of that salty mass. After your arteries are hard as bricks, you thank God for the cold pint of Lager.Read More
Jensen drove us to the peninsula town of Mölle about one hour south of Mellbystrand. The town was silent. On one corner, mannequins were dressed and hidden behind poles like urban scarecrows staring privately upon your homesick soul in the hope that you would turn heel and leave the town in peace, or face mortal consequence.Read More

The pictures from your phone suck. You may know this, and you probably don’t want to admit it. You bought the phone because of it’s awesome camera, super low-light, and cool “portrait mode” features that turn “the world into your studio.” But there’s one thing your phone can’t do for you: frame the shot.Read More

My cousin arranged a charter boat to take a group of us tuna fishing near San Diego. We loaded up in Mission Harbour, north of San Diego, and travelled all night out to San Clemente Island.Read More
I swear, the light never looked bad. You can’t take a bad picture in this city.Read More
Another snow storm is threatening to end an adventure. Time is short but spirits are high as my dad and I fight our way across a frozen nation from Bellingham, WA to Ft. Bragg, NC to get my brother's car to him. My 3rd lesson of 2017 is somewhere in here.

New Years Eve, 2016. We're digging a snow cave deep in the backcountry of British Columbia. The light is leaving us and the temperatures are dropping to -30 degrees Celsius.
6 hours of hiking through a snowstorm in -30 degree weather had me confronting mortality. Yet, at the same time, in awe of the beauty of our planet. This was the last hours of 2016 and the first moment of 2017.

2017 was a year of non-sense. But, in that year, I learned 4 incredibly valuable life lessons over 4 different trips. None of them are revolutionary, but they finally became tangible.
It's important to look back and to understand your story. For the first month of 2018 I'll be going back through images from these 4 trips and talking about what I learned from each trip and how I came to realize I need to confront my fears and begin photographing people.
Here's a sneak peak from the trips of 2017 and where we'll be going!

"Be careful - don't walk over there!" a voice yelled. A blast of heat rushed up my leg as I stepped over a crevice. "Walk over that way!" A man yelled and pointed at me to go right. I was walking over an active lava flow and the lava could be quite weak. Those white spots I noticed earlier?Read More
