About

I wander the southwest capturing scenes which tell stories embeded in artifacts and landscapes

For 25 years I have dragged cameras around the four corner states of New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah. I am attracted by human artifacts, especially those of automobile culture and evidence of boom and bust cycles that have established a culture that is the West. I am new to Etsy but not new to the retail art and gift marketplace. I consider Etsy a great way to share with the world the beautiful places and brief but intense scenes of beauty I am fortunate enough to have witnessed. I work out of my house in Paonia, Colorado which I share with my wife and 6 year old Son.

I am also a multimedia producer and veteran videojournalist. I studied photography at Northern Arizona University in the 90's and began shooting video for television while still in high school. While at NAU I became enamored with old Route 66 and the vestiges of a classic part of American history that is now only a memory for most.
