I grew up in east LA County and have lived in California all of my life. My photography is focused on urban and wilderness landscapes, but I like capturing people in their daily lives too. I've spent the better part of my adult life as a community organizer in Los Angeles. I definitely enjoy creating stuff (and building), but I don't really consider myself an artist. That would be a disservice to actual artists. However, since I was a kid I've been hooked on writing/recording music, taking photos, drawing, and camping.
On the weekends I like to go far into the mountains. I quit my job and hiked 1,000 miles of the PCT in 2017. I attempted a thru-hike but my knees turned to jello. I got some cool pictures, and even more terrible ones.
I created this site to keep all my stuff in one place, and to share my adventures with anyone interested to see them.
I shoot with a Nikon D810 & Fujifilm XT1.
