Almost two decades ago, I planted both feet firmly in the world of falling snow, moving water and massive stone. As extreme sports entered the American mainstream, I was there to tell the stories of athletes like rock-climbing legend Chris Sharma, kayaking pioneer Eric Jackson and world-champion surfer Lisa Anderson.
Soon, editors at National Geographic Adventure, The New York Times Magazine and Sports Illustrated regularly turned to me to bring them startling, memorable images and unforgettable stories of those who pushed the limits.
As my career evolved, I dove into the world of filmmaking, and soon found myself combining my love of still photography with motion storytelling and small-footprint productions in some of the wildest locations on earth. Now, we continue to work with some of the biggest companies in the world, who regularly turn to us to help them craft their biggest advertising campaigns and corporate stories with that same extreme passion and authenticity that we find in adventure sports.
For any passionate person who loves what he does, the line between work and play is hazy indeed. When not on assignment, I'm at home in Lake Tahoe because no matter when I open my front door, I step out to three-feet of freshly fallen snow, miles of pristine trails, towering granite walls and countless adventures just waiting to become tomorrow’s stories.
