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 research, communication, and sustainable development.
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.
