Environmental photography and photojournalism isn’t just about raising awareness, it’s about drawing lines in the sand and seeing whose standing where. It was after about six months of living alone in the mountains of Northern California that I discovered the true depth of my own connection to the natural world as well as our human obligation of stewardship of that world. Photography and journalism are my effort to help others realize their own connection with the magic that occurs out here. The actual experience of this magic defies words and pictures. I can only hope to inspire.
