I started this website in the fall of 2000 during my first year at Princeton Theological Seminary as a way to keep in touch (in the time before Facebook) with friends and family on the west coast.
In the decade since then it has seen many permutations and has been the vehicle for sharing my journey through the ordination process and through life, including living in Scotland, the death of my father, traveling around the world (literally), getting ordained as a 'Designated Tentmaking Evangelist' in the Presbyterian Church, hiking the High Sierra Trail, and moving to Baja California.
Some of the stories are silly (and there are far too many about the weather), some are more serious (which is actually possible, if required) but all have been a significant piece of the journey that I have found myself on over these past ten years of learning to pay attention. That's part of what I love about being a photographer--it invites you to pay attention, and then to share that attentiveness (mindfulness) with others. Photography allows you to 'freeze' a moment in time and say 'hey, look at this. Isn't it _________?'
Though my path has not been, shall we say, a normal one ever since I left the corporate world in the summer of 2000, it has been rich, at times incredibly difficult, but one for which I am amazingly grateful.
