My interest in photography began at a young age, watching slideshows of my father's travels around the world. I studied photography in college, receiving an associates degree in Art from James Madison University. My first job after school was as a photographer for The Tico Times, Central America's leading English newspaper- based in San Jose, Costa Rica. Since then I have enjoyed documenting nature, wildlife, friends and family along the way. The series of images presented in this show are from the California coast, from BIg Sur up to Mendocino. A number of the shots are from here on lovely Mount Tamalpais-- a truly incredible place to call home.
