"I work as a photojournalist for a daily newspaper in North Idaho. I am married and have three boys. I use photography as a way to grow on a personal level. I see the world as a series of moments and feelings. Photography is a way for me to relish this, to record and share, to relive. Sparked by the close interactions of the world and time where I live, I use photography and its process to express my gratitude for the fleeting moments of present as they become the past."

"Idaho, the Gem State. From its mining history to its geographical diversity, Idaho is rich with both people and landscapes that resist and crave cultural change. It is this conflict that keeps my eyes and ears tuned."
