Originally from Wisconsin, I moved to Southeast Asia 15 years ago. Buckets of fish sauce later, I'm based in Tokyo where I work at the intersection of sustainable development, communications, and research.

My academic and professional roots are in forest biology, which branched to social science and international development. As a result, I’ve been fortunate to spend the past few decades exploring and working in the forests, paddies, villages, and cities from the Cascade Mountains to the Mekong Delta.

Photography has always been part of my work, travel, and days in between. It's my diary and an important part of my learning process — a medium that fosters focus and understanding, and creates a vivid reference. At its best, it's an unmatched form of communication.


I'm currently refreshing serial content and galleries, but you can also follow my iPhone photography on Instagram.

Feel free to send me a message if you have project ideas, questions, or just want to say hello.
