Adventures. Words. Images.

I'm an adventurer, writer, and story teller.  Fueled by my personal mantra––the Earth is cool––I have dedicated my life to exploring as much of it as I can.  My words have appeared in Overland Journal, Expedition Portal, Bikepacking.com, Singletracks.com, Conde Nast Traveler, Nepali Times, Bikerumor.com, Gearjunkie.com, UpShift Online, Overland Magazine UK, 5280 Magazine, and other outlets. My work has been included in catalogs and promotional campaigns for REI,  Salsa Cycles, Sea to Summit, James Baroud, Bedrock Bags, and many others. And it all starts with getting off the couch and into the big wide world.

My Latest Adventure: Patagonia by motorcycle

My bags have yet to be unpacked and my motorcycle gear is still covered in dust from the road. It's been days since I returned home, but I don't want to let this trip end. I have always wanted to visit the unspoiled landscapes of southern Chile and it was well worth the wait. With Daniel of Moto Patagonia as my guide, I got to see and experience all that the Chilean frontier has to offer. It will take me some time to let this one sink in. Until then...

Fleeting Moments of the Year

  Pacaya and Fuego Volcanoes of Guatemala   It's incredible to think there are places in the world where you can see two volcanoes erupting at the same time. Even more wild is the ability to stand on an adjacent peak only 100 meters away from one of those fire breathing beasts. The Earth is cool.

  Cordillera Blanca Peru  Some scenes unfold with serendipitous timing. I never fail to appreciate good fortunate and finding myself at the nexus of time and place. This Peruvian horseman walked up to his mare just as the sun dipped low in the sky casting an etherial glow on the lake behind them.

  Patagonia, Chile  It's not often I catch a cool scene with a Chilean cowboy, his horse and a loyal pup. Particularly with a backdrop of wildflowers. Even more challenging is catching this fleeting moment from the seat of a motorcycle. These shots are seldom perfect, but the roughness is what I like most.
