I went to high school in a small ski town and snowboarded nearly every weekend during the ski season. I went to college at Humboldt State University. I lived and trained in San Luis Obispo, California and Boulder, Colorado.

Distance running, cycling and swimming offered me even more direction. I found my place in life engulfed with endurance racing, art, design and photography.

There is no "Help Wanted" sign for what I do. No real absolute direction. Just pure self motivation as the driving force for where I've landed. Team work with people that I will always remember and inspiration from the places that I've traveled to and the people and subjects that I've covered.

Long days. Long nights. Eagerness to go to work the next day. Returning home knowing that I made the correct career choice. I had to find my own way on a path that is never ending. Always evolving. 

And I'm never looking back.
