About

I started backpacking in the Washington Cascades with my parents in about 1964. In the mid 70's I started climbing, and spent most of my climbing career on the West Coast, before getting out of more extreme alpinism in about 1989. In 2002, I started going on canoe expeditions in Canada's North. My career for more than 20 years, was as a cinematographer on documentaries mainly, but also on commercials and features. My clients included National Geographic, WGBH Boston, the BBC, and the Discovery Channel. In 2002, I switched to print media, writing and photographing environmental and recreational articles, with a primary focus on Canada's North. I'm a bit of gear head, with the caveat that I prefer simple and rugged products and will choose those over saving a few grams or reducing the size by a few millimeters.
