Conservation of forest and river ecosystems


I'm a freelance adventure and conservation photographer based in New York City. Currently my work is being used to help promote US Senator Michael Bennet and US Representative Jared Polis’s Continental Divide, Wilderness and Camp Hale Legacy Act, introduced to Congress January 2018. My imagery is helping persuade state and federal policy makers to implement sustainable solutions to combat the impacts of climate change on our forests in partnership with the Union of Concerned Scientists’ Forest Health Report “Rocky Mountain Forests at Risk”.  My work is also being used to influence stakeholders to support watershed and riparian restoration efforts on a major upper tributary of the Colorado River with the National Forest Foundation.

My work has been featured in numerous conservation and adventure campaigns and publications including The Pew Charitable Trusts, United States Forest Service, American Rivers, The Wilderness Society, LightHawk, Sierra Magazine, Earth Island Journal, Outside Magazine, 5280 Magazine, The Drake Magazine, SKI Magazine, Golden Ride Magazine, Western Rise, Native Eyewear, Mountainsmith, Teva, GoPro and Vail Resorts.
