Tulum, Mexico

This year in early March I had the opportunity to visit Mexico to check out the Tulum ruins as well as dive in the many freshwater sinkholes called cenotes. Not only were the ruins breathtaking but so were the cenotes and their life giving crystal clear water. The Mayan words "Ts'onot" or "Xenote" generally mean "well" or "waterwell" and refer to any source of fresh groundwater. Hundreds of feet deep, most cenotes are unexplored in their entirety and it is believed that most (if not all) are connected, making the area near Tulum possibly the largest freshwater underground river system on Earth. This area is a hot spot of speleological research which involves highly technical deep-water and cave diving expertise, making it the go-to destination of it's kind. Nikon D3200 / GoPro3+

ABOUT

Those of us who were fortunate enough to have grown up in the Pacific Northwest know something profound, we know that this place has molded us into who we are and it has influenced how we move through this world, encouraging us to explore and travel. Maybe I'm jaded, but this thing we call life is far too interesting to go unexplored. As a result, I've spent my entire life venturing outdoors into the wilderness. Whether climbing, surfing or the alpine, and a hearty lust for travel, they have taken me all over the world. So recently I left my job to explore a new unknown, to pursue a creative path for myself, to seek out new realities as well as the many characters along the way. I take images with both film and digital cameras. These are some of my stories and images, I sincerely hope you enjoy.
