About me

I aim to spend my time honoring the natural, a world that is becoming more and more separate from our daily lives. 

Save for this website my work is analog in form. I come from a line of analog creators, my grandfather a cartographer hand-mapping a small city in southern WA, my mother exploring and redefining the oldest known fabric: wool felt, and my father producing craft audio equipment through exquisitely detailed and beautiful creations.

My methods of production honor slowness and contemplation. The act of taking our time and being unable to erase or easily edit changes the way we interact with the subject, and adds an element of care in this world of fast-produced and fast-digested content. I photograph with an old 35mm film camera, and write by hand or using a 100 year old portable typewriter. I travel in the back of an old pickup that I renovated into a camper, doing maintenance work myself.

I am the lover of uncontained and immortal beauty. In the wilderness, I find something more dear and connate than in streets or villages. In the tranquil landscape, and especially in the distant line of the horizon, man beholds somewhat as beautiful as his own nature.
