if i had to define myself i would say i'm a climber photographer lover traveler inspired motivated adventurer leader helper great friend free spirit freelancer, should i keep going? no? good!
when i don't have a work schedule i'm always on the move doing everything from driving to another climbing spot, videographing a wedding, to landscape designing a backyard, to abalone diving, to photographing a classical concert in Perugia, Italy, to climbing a mountain in New Zealand to... taking my mom out for her birthday. i love to travel, but more than that i love to find amazing places and live there to fully experience them. i've lived in New Zealand, Paris and Italy(twice), the sacramento valley(where i grew up), santa cruz and now yosemite. friends, family and experiences are the most important things to me and i will travel across the world and do anything or give up everything for what is important to me. i feel my way thru life and make choices with my heart.
the spanish filmmaker Luis Buñuel said, "When we are on our deathbed the only things we have in life are our experiences." i read that about 11 years ago and have since been living my life accordingly. with the goal not of accumulating things, but relationships, ideas, connections, loves, sights, sounds, smells, touches and most of all experiences. to take risks and to live in the moment, to laugh, to smile, to create and to find adventure everyday in everyway is my goal. if you ask why i joined this sight i would reply, "to find someone to join me."
