I love meeting people who I can nerd out with, and who can wax rhapsodic about awesome things.
I've done photography, poster art, and now I'm working on a project that's new and unconventional and super fun that combines a bunch of things I love. My magnum opus (well, so far) is a 5-inch-thick volume (in a very small print run!) of my photography of every town/village/hamlet/ghost town in North Dakota.
I like spending my summers outdoors and my winters indoors.

- you like to go on walks around the city and look at all the little bits that hold it together.
- you like (or are at least aware of) William Christenberry, Stephen Shore, or Robert Adams.
- you think I sound interesting but also like an elitist jerk (I'm not, really!).
- you think I sound uninteresting and would like to tell me so.
