Water is my element, where I feel most at home. Kayaking is my passion, bringing out the best in me and challenging me to be better. Bringing a camera on my watery sojourns helps me share this passion in a colorful, soulful reality.
In spring 2010, with my world scaled down to an eighteen-foot sea kayak and a 1,200 mile ribbon of water known as the Inside Passage, I launched a journey of the sea and soul that took me both north to Alaska and inward, as I discovered the depths of my own strength and courage. Along the way I managed to snap over 4,000 images: magical moments captured both on and off the water. I was awestruck by the beauty and the power of the places I visited and feel honored to be able to share them here with you. Enjoy!
