    Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, I have spent my life living on islands, celebrating nature through my lenses. From the raw and pristine beauty of the outer west coast of Canada, to the exotic biodiversity of the Big Island of Hawaii, I am compelled to promote the protection of the earth's life-sustaining ecosystems, wild habitats, and its creatures through my work.

    The Big Island’s ecology, history, and culture have lead to endless exciting photographic possibilities; it is a place of great passion and inspiration.

    On the bragging front my images and video footage has been wildly used the world over by movie productions, TV broadcasts, books & magazines, DVD & CD covers. I have also published a limited edition lava book and have plans for another.

    My high-definition, extreme molten lava action video of Hawaii Island’s eruptive Kilauea Volcano is highly sought after, and has appeared in documentaries and TV specials produced by NBC, National Geographic, and in many countries the world over. I am currently working on my second feature length molten lava documentary. I am currently based on the Big Island and on the southwest coast of British Columbia,
