Open Aperture

Behind the camera, I'm a life documentarian.

I'm so much more observant of the world around me when I have a camera with me.

One of my absolute favorite things to do is to pack my car or truck with a camera bag or two, an ice packed cooler of sandwiches and waters, an overnight bag of faded blue jeans and t-shirts, and to hit the road for a few solo days with a destination of nowhere. Removing myself from my normal everyday inspires me.

I get lost and renewed with the adventure, the sunshine, the communities I visit, the people I meet, and the soundtrack of the journey.
