East of WyEast

Mt. Hood is a special place for most people that I know, especially those of us who grew up staring at it everyday. The real lucky few are those who have made a carrier working with, on, or around her. Such as my good friend Dave Baker. As a patroller during the winter and working with the forest service during the summer he gets to explore some amazing little zones that few will ever see but we all dream about. This secret spot was one of the little gems that he's found that will shine in our memories for a long time. Dave single handedly cleared the trail of a season's worth of fallen trees and debris so that we could share a roaring fire with old friends and new on the edge of this amazing precipice. If you ever find a spot like this, hold on to it and never let it go.



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.
