This website is an outpouring of my need to share my experiences and document the world around me. I began the site as a means to display my outdoor photography. As my addiction to mountaineering and rock climbing took a firm hold, my photos became more climbing-oriented, and the site evolved into an ever-growing wealth of climbing trip reports. I also use the website as a platform for a variety of unique  projects I've dreamed up. 

The scope and size of my website might be intimidating to those first discovering it, but I've endeavored to make it logically organized. Or, if you are the adventurous type, just navigate through the pages on a whim and enjoy whatever armchair adventures you find yourself on!
What's on my website:
1. Trip Reports
This section is the current focus of my website, and contains numerous detailed climbing trip reports of classic climbs I've done, both close to home in Washington and BC as well as across the western US. Plus a few non-climbing adventures.
You can navigate my trip reports in 3 main ways:
by Clickable Map
by Alphabetical Thumbnail Area Lists
by Chronological Order (List of all my Trip Reports)

2. Projects
Labeled panoramas, posters, photo comparisons, route overlays, articles, statistical studies, drawings, and more unique and creative ways of documenting the world around me!

3. Photography
My website started with a focus on photography, but over the years has switched its focus to climbing trip reports. Nevertheless, in this section of my site you will find well-developed pages for aerial photography and night photography, as well as birds, bugs, flowers, animals, mountains, timelapses, photography roadtrips and more!
