I’m a Canadian-born climber, photographer, and nervous giggler. I graduated with a degree in Cognitive Systems: Computational Intelligence and Design, and worked as a software engineer in Seattle for 7 years — but my love for the outdoors, and a desire to focus my life on community and personal relationships, led me to quit the tech industry.
For me, photography is a means to share my love of climbing and nature with others. I find fulfillment in capturing special moments, and being able to cement those memories for friends and strangers alike. The personal connection has always been my main motivator in life, and this often translates to my photography as my climbing photos are better described as adventure portraiture, rather than landscape or action shots.
I am also a staunch advocate for protecting our wild places — and I believe that people will protect what they love. If photographs can memorialize those moments of connection in nature, and inspire people to get outside and fall deeper in love with the world around them, then perhaps they can help them care about preserving it as well.
These days my time is mostly spent routesetting, coaching youth climbers, and serving on the Board of the Ontario Alliance of Climbers. My spare hours will find me climbing, taking photos of climbing, or sampling the latest chocolate I’ve just discovered.
See you out on the wall! Or at the base of it with my camera 😉
