Colorful Colorado
March 2019

Thanks to a work trip John had to take, cheap flights, and lots of accrued vacation at my full time job, I landed in Colorado for nine days over spring break. John and I had a few days to explore together and then I was on my own while John went to business meetings, so I got to do a fair bit of exploring and photography out of our base in the Denver/Boulder area...

Switzerland

For more than a year, I had been trying to figure out an overseas vacation for John and I, as John had never traveled outside of North America, despite having traveled pretty extensively throughout the U...

AMC White Mountains Fall Foliage Workshop
October 2014

In October 2014, I partnered with the Appalachian Mountain Club to offer an autumn photography workshop for photographers at their White Mountains Highland Center in Crawford Notch. Most of these photos were snapped in the days prior to the workshop, when I was scouting locations on my own...

Nepal
February 2013

In 2013, I traveled to Nepal for ten days as part of a scouting trip for NatureScapes.Net, the photography company I was working for at the time. The goal of the trip was to allow me to see various parts of the country in as short a time as possible to determine if the photographic opportunities, in country amenities and services, and existing infrastructure could attract and support a group of American photo-tourists in the country...

Ecuador Mountaineering

Prior to the trip the highest I had ever been was 11,542 feet when crossing over Hoosier Pass on my cross country bike trip in 2009, and the only "mountaineering" I had done was a winter ascent of Mount Washington the year before...

I traveled to Costa Rica as part of my Tropical Ecology and Conservation field studies class while enrolled in the Master's program in Environmental Studies at Antioch University New England...

Frame of Mind Haiti
February 2012

In February 2012, I had traveled to Haiti with the now defunct non-profit, Frame of Mind, to observe and participate in one of their youth photo education projects as part of my research for my Master's project on how participatory photography programs could be used to engage young people with nature...

Bike Trip Across America
June-September 2009

Spring of 2009 came around and I was frustrated with my job, my long term relationship was coming to end, and I felt like I needed a fresh start. So when one of my coworkers asked me to join her and a few others on a bike trip across the United States, I said "Sure, why not?" and signed myself up...

NSN Chincoteague Meet-Up
November 2007

NatureScapes.Net used to have a pretty vibrant Mid-Atlantic Chapter, and the chapter leader would coordinate meet-ups at various locations where NSN members and forum participants could just meet-up, hang out, and shoot together...
