I got my first camera as a six year old from my grandfather, a reporter and lifetime sailor. He took me sailing, to see the Orcas in the San Juan Islands. After an afternoon spent screaming with delight at the sight of each dorsal fin, I discovered that I had forgotten to put film in the camera. Off to a good start. Returning to Seattle in 2013, I began to reconnect with wilderness and as I did, I quickly felt inspired to pick up a camera and make my best attempts towards documenting my experiences.
