For the last 15 years, I worked at Yeti Cycles a manufacturer of high-end mountain bikes. After starting on the bottom rung assembling bikes I eventually through many trials and tribulations fought my way up to the role of Creative Director. This winding path of self-learning and was not an easy one, but it was rewarding. The work challenged me in every capacity and the relationships forged there were like a second family. While this was my dream job, I have recently struck out on my own to find new challenges working with other like-minded creatives and brands on projects big and small.
Originally from the east coast, I headed west in pursuit of mountain bike trails and powder runs seen only in the pages of magazines. Over time I transitioned my passion for the outdoors into creative endeavors. An initial interest in print design and typography morphed when I purchased my first camera. Since that fateful purchase, still and motion imagery have dominated my work, capturing pure visceral moments, the lifestyle that surrounds adventure, and our connection to the natural landscape.
After achieving individual success having been published in the likes of the Bike Mag Photo Annual and the Red Bull Illume book, I transitioned from submitting work to controlling the narrative. I set about crafting film and interactive stories with other creatives and brands that focus on bringing the spirit of adventure to the forefront. By minimizing direct messaging and highlighting the experience, people connect on a more intrinsic level.
When not talking f/stops and planning the next excursion, I bring my reluctant family into the natural landscapes I so enjoy. I am based in Denver, Colorado.
