I Climbed a Mountain to Discover a View Worth Sharing.
Sharing discoveries are why I became a professional photographer, filmmaker, writer of essays and an instructor in technology education.
Long before I ever picked up a camera, or knew how to write, my perception of the world was fresh with exciting places to see, touch and explore. Enthusiasm towards my new discoveries compelled me to share stories with those around me. In my secondary and post-secondary education, I found wonder in knowledge to be gained —but it came with a price of training and commitment, like taking the first few steady steps towards climbing a mountain. All the steps paid off by providing me with the creative and technical skills needed for sharing new forms of vision.
The first 12 years of my professional life provided work as a filmmaker and photographer for industry icons such as; Kaye-Smith Studios, KING TV, The Boeing Company and Academy Award-winning cinematographer/director Haskell Wexler. During my early career I was also fortunate with landing several epic freelance photography assignments which took me above Alaska’s Arctic Circle. Since those early years my career has climbed to higher heights — to see some of them, please view my multimedia eLearning sites through the links provided below.
