Bio/CV

I am a dad, husband, writer, photographer, podcaster, book artist, and (to pay the bills) electrical engineer. I am always tired.

I live in San Diego, California with my wife, three kids, and dog. Of the six of us, I'm the least charming, interesting, or attractive. I'd say that puts me in a pretty good position.

All of my work, whether photography, writing, book arts, or podcasting, is about looking closer. The world is an amazing, beautiful, and mysterious place, but often you must intentionally look closer in order to see it. Slow down. Notice things. All we have is time.
