Words And Pictures From Across The Globe
Most events are the result of a chain reaction. A series of events leading up to a single event – which is itself, a single event which will lead directly, indirectly, and seemingly impossibly towards some other completely unknown future event. It’s physics, it’s geometry, it’s stardust.
Gluten free and Vegan?! A few years ago that would sound to me like a really boring dinner. But once again we grow, we learn, and we meet amazing people who take our pre-concieved notions and crush them under their knowledge and wisdom boots. Cara at Fork and Beans is one of those people quietly […]
You never know where things will lead or how long anything will last. It’s the great unknown on the other side of the freelance see-saw. I have begun working with the wonderful and talented people in the Whole Food’s media department. These are the same folks behind the jaw dropping Dark Rye – if you haven’t seen […]
Back in November I spent a few weeks amongst the throngs of Mumbai while shooting a commercial for the Bollywood music streaming service Saavn. I made a lot of new friends, learned zero words in yet another language, and bought some trinkets. All in all, it was a really fantastic experience and the spot came out […]
If you live in Southern California and have never been to Yosemite National Park, you should drop everything immediately, get in your car and drive the four and a half hours up north.

I’m not totally sure which word Leonard Knight’s Salvation Mountain is the definition of: passion, compulsion, devotion, commitment, dedication, drive? Pick one or add a few of your own. Either way, this is a pretty […]
At the turn of the last century, while attempting to bring water and then agriculture to the barren Imperial Valley, the California Development Company managed create an irreprable flood permanently submerging the town of Salton, the entire New Liverpool Salt Company, land belonging to the Torres-Martinez Native American tribe, and an integral stretch of the Southern […]
Most people know that I kind of have a thing for decay and apparently Mumbai has a real knack for it. So much of the city, its signage and ornamentation is hand painted that nearly everywhere you look you can see peeling paint and the multiple layers of peeling paint beneath that.
In the seventeen days that I was in Mumbai, I probably spent more time in the car than I did anywhere else. Seriously. Getting anywhere in that city takes at least an hour.
