As I was walking around my parents house this holiday season, I came across an image of myself as a wee little lad. Not only did I do a double take, but I had to run and grab my son so that I could take this photo to show the similarities between my son Jack

More time to work, more time to write, more time to photograph and more time to spend with
This morning I found myself in one of my favorite places in all of Colorado, Great Sand Dunes National Park. After getting up at 5am and hiking up the tallest sand dune in North America (while already at 8,000 ft of elevation) I was greeted to an awesome sunrise. Following that epic light, I ventured
This past April, I spent 27 days documenting one of my favorite regions in the world. The Himalayas. This is a short video I took as I crossed over the Kongma La Pass in the Khumbu Region, home to Mt. Everest. This was taken at roughly 18,500 ft. Who is coming with me on my
