I was born in Duncan, British Columbia where I spent my first five years. As a child I spent the majority of my time outside exploring the forest surrounding my parents house. This immediate exposure to exploration of the outdoors fostered a later appreciation for all things outside. I'm most at peace surrounded by big landscapes and blue sky's.
I've always been an artist; from pencil, paper and paint brush to 3D modeling then later to photography. I had always been attracted to photography as a means of capturing what the things that I saw; however, I never really pursued pursued it vigorously until I traveled to Alaska for the first time. My first overland trip to Alaska was what broke me into the world of travel and road-born adventure photography. From then I have continually developed on my skill set and have attempted to branch out to other forms of photography but have always come back and enjoyed capturing vehicle born travelers and how they interact with the landscapes around them.
If you're wondering about the Toyota thing, it's been an obsession for many years with many variations. The truck is my ticket to pretty much everywhere I go and it's slowly becoming my home. I'm pulling a Boler trailer now as my wife and I globe-trot around North America, it affords me an editing space and dry place to sleep anywhere I go.
