Photography: With my photos and visual media, I aim to bring a first-person artistic eye to alpine adventures, interesting cultures and events, or simple moments. These images have been published in magazines such as Men’s Journal, National Geographic, and with commercial clients such as Marmot and La Sportiva.
Alpinism and climbing: I have almost 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. Lately I have participated as climber and photographer on the Zanskar Odyssey and Incan Odyssey: both Marmot-sponsored full-spectrum high-altitude bouldering and alpine-style peak climbing first-ascent expeditions.
Culture and travel: With almost 25 years of travel to over 30 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 & photography: I have worked as a web designer/programmer for over 5 years, been an active photographer for almost two decades, and I love design 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, luxury eco-friendly custom home-builder & real estate investor, and non-profit director.
