About Me

I grew up in a small city - skateboarding kept me out of trouble. A lot of skateboarders like to film each other doing tricks or a series of tricks called, "lines" We do this for independent skateboard films - it's a document of our love and progression. I soon realized I was good at this, and long story short; I began to study photography. I always had a fascination with preserving special moments. It's like an obsession for me. I began taking photos 9 years ago - it started with snaps of friends, and soon lead to the streets of Winnipeg - a nearby city - where we would go to seek out new skateboard spots. I liked the dangers of the city and capturing the "dark" side of things. I then moved out to my cottage, and on my way to work early in a summer morning. I saw a wolf eating a deer on the side of the highway. From there I studied wolves, and then owls and many other animals and birds. I now have my own place across the highway from my cabin, and I am up with the sun following the tracks of a wolf pack or a lone lynx, or listening for the call of an owl in hopes of capturing and preserving that one moment that gets me out of bed every morning.
