Alpinist, rock and ice climber, photographer/videographer, and web developer.
Photography and Media:
I bring a first-person artistic vision to alpine adventures, culture, commercial projects, or simple traveling moments, and am also a team player. My images have been published in magazines such as Men’s Journal, National Geographic, and with commercial clients such as Marmot and La Sportiva. Video captures have been used in several films such as the Incan Odyssey and the Zanskar Odyssey.
Alpinism and climbing:
20 years of experience on remote high-altitude ascents in the Himalaya and Andes, and rock and ice climbs throughout N. America and elsewhere in the world. Recently I have participated as climber and photographer on the Zanskar Odyssey and Incan Odyssey: both Marmot-sponsored full-spectrum climbing adventures involving high-altitude bouldering and alpine first-ascent attempts. In 2013 I traveled back to Peru, and received the prestigious Copp-Dash Inspire Award to travel to Afghanistan to explore virgin peaks and faces.
Culture and travel:
With 25 years of travel to over 35 countries, I am a seasoned cultural observer. I speak Spanish, Italian and French and have spent considerable time in countries all over the world; in the mountains, jungles, deserts, beaches, small towns, and large cities.
Web Development, graphic design:
I have worked as a web designer/programmer for over 5 years, and enjoyed a love of photography for almost two decades. I’m inspired by clean design and writing, and problem-solving. Web development allows me to bring my artistry, intellect, and engineering/design education to bear on projects.
My family background is in classical music, I studied Engineering at Brown University, and have been a physics and math teacher, high-end eco-friendly custom builder & real estate investor, and non-profit director in the past.
