I'm a professional free lance photo-journalist and live with my artist wife, Pamela, in the San Juan Islands where we use alternative energy, grow a huge garden and have an engaging, eclectic, leaning-toward-pagan, counter-culture community. My work appears at the national level as feature fly fishing, river running, and sea kayaking articles, short fiction and gear reviews. I'm not much of a photographer really, but that's what friends are for. Writing is pretty much a tool to fund my addiction and adventure journalism makes it possible to spend a month on the BC coast each year, to run the high desert rivers of the northwest: the Snake, Salmon, Deschutes, Owyhee, and to get up into the mountains.

I have two books published to date: Rivers of Dreams, and Journal of a Naked Fly Fisherman, and am currently working on several others. Historically, my book focus has been fly fishing adventure, but the last chapter of ‘Journal’ segues into a HUGE passion, wilderness sea kayaking. In this unedited version of a story that appeared in Fly Rod & Reel Magazine over a decade ago, I describe what it's like out on a 102 day solo kayak odyssey around Vancouver Island.

An incisive thinker with a short attention span, I'm happy if I average a couple/three quality hours a day of writing. When I'm not writing, I'm trying to keep up a 20 acre spread, playing disc golf or, you guessed it, board gaming. Island life revolves around routine, seasonal chores: chopping wood, cleaning chimneys, working the garden. Our disc golf course, BTW, is an ‘object’ course, in deference to Pamela’s artistic sensibilities; no chains and baskets, but rather, simple rock cairns for pins. But it is an AWESOME course with tees situated on high rock bluffs overlooking a mix of wide open grass fairways, ponds and orchards. I've been treating the game much as I do meditation—as discipline, and play a round daily, rain or snow.

If you're ever in the islands ring me up and I'll show you around.
