I grew up on the east coast, having never ventured beyond the Appalachian Mountains. After graduating college, I left home to see the beautiful wide world, and fell in love with both landscape photography and the desert southwest. Since then, I've transplanted myself to Tucson AZ and traveled to every state except Alaska and Hawaii. I've also hitchhiked through some of Ireland and made a brief stop in England. Whenever I get the opportunity, I drive to somewhere I've never been before.
