seize the day, see the world & lead by example

So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: Who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed? -Hunter S Thompson

 
  • photographer

    I shoot with a Canon T1i and am currently re-learning Photoshop & Lightroom CC. No bag of tricks aside from a China-Made tripod and a shutter release for selfies and star-trails. I've got a solid foundation of academic training, and I fill the technical gaps with creativity.
  • writer

    My grand plan is to write profound pieces about things, places and ideas that will better the world. In the mean time, I'm just stringing words together and waiting for a stroke of genius to hit me. My preference is feature-writing and creative human interest pieces, but my goal is to become a well-rounded journalist in all aspects of the field.
  • traveler

    After I got my college diploma, I decided to hit the road indefinitely. For more than two years, I made tracks through Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. I've recently decided to stand still for a minute in Golden, Colorado, and now I'm currently chasing the American Dream in the wild west.
